The following is the committee that had the 
responsible duty of selecting a Provost under 
the new order of things and which nominated 
Dr. Fell for the position: Mr. Philemon H. 
Tuck, Department of Arts and Sciences,' chair- 
man ; Dr. Thomas A. Ashby, Department of 
Medicine; i\lr. Joseph C. France, Department of 
Law ; Dr. Timoth}' O. Heatwole, Department 
of Dentistry: Dr. David M. R. Culbreth, De- 
partment of Pharmacy. 


As was confidently expected, the report of the 
committee of inspection was favorable and Dr. 
Coale was notified on the 11th instant that the 
School of Medicine had been restored to the A 
class. Much of the criticism of the committee of 
1911 that turned us down was imjust, but un- 
doubtedly their judgment had a wholesome effect 
in stirring us up and many things have been 
done as a consequenc in the way of betterment, 
some cf which might otherwise have been left 
undone. These changes have been noted in our 
columns from time to time in the last twelve 
months. So the scare has done us good and 
doubtless we will take care to avoid any such 
dano;ers in the future. 

A meeting of the .llitmni Council was held at 
the office of Judge Walter I. Dawkins, Fidelity 
I'.uilding, Jan. 28th. Judge Dawkins was elect 
President for 1913 and, Mr. John H 
was re-elected Secretary. The Sec 

rected to write to the Board of Regents and ex- 
press the gratification of the Council at the elec- 
tion of a paid Provost of the University. On 
motion of Mr. J. W. Bowers a committee of 
five, representing the various departments of the 
University, was appointed to consider and report 
ways and means of securing a Gymnasium. 
Committee : Mr. Bowers, Dr. Wirt A. Duvall, 
Dr. Herbert L. Gorgas, Dr. C. O. Miller, Dr. 
Jos. E. Gichner. After further discussion the 
Council adjourned. 


The Regents of the Universit\ met in annual 
session on January 7, Judge Stockbridge, Acting 
Provost, in the chair. The report of the Commit- 
mittee appointed last September to nominate a 
Provost was presented. Dr. Fell being nomi- 
nated. Dr. Fell was then unanimously elected 
Provost for the ensuing year. He will be a 
salaried officer and have an office for the present 
in the room formerly used as a library opposite 
Dean Coale's office. He will continue as Presi- 
dent of St. John's, spending about half his time 
in Baltimore. The Board of V^isitors and Gov- 
ernors of St. John's has approved of the election. 
Dr. Randolph Winslow was re-elected Treasurer 
cf the Board and Dr Daniel Base was made Sec- 
retary. Dr Fell conferred with the Deans, and a 
committee from the Board of Visitors and Gov- 
e"ncrs of St. John's, on January 11, and entered 
upon his duties at the University on Januar}- 13. 
o '- 

In the election of Dr. Fell as Provost to suc- 
ceed the late Mr. Bernard Carter, the Regents 
have acted wisely. It is hard to see how they 
could have dene diffcently, if the plan of a paid 
JPrm'or J^yas to be consummated. In the condi- 
sity's finances, cost had to be 
An outsider was not to be 


thought of in view of the large salary to be paid 
for a suitable person. We were compelled there- 
fore to look within our own circles and of those 
who were possibly available, who was to compare 
with Dr. Fell? He was already President of our 
Academic Department and had shown decided 
executive ability during the 26 years of his in- 
cumbency of that position. He has had large 
experience and is otherwise peculiarl}' cjuali- 
fied for the ofRce. From the beginning he has 
been one of the strongest advocates of the affilia- 
tion of the University and St. John's and has 
done much to strengthen that bond. Lastly, Dr. 
Fell was already salaried at St. John's and did 
not require therefore to be paid a full salary here. 


Bangor, Maine, Jan. 9, 1913. 
Eugene F. Cordell, M.D., 

Baltimore, Md. ; 
Dear Doctor: — 

I herewith enclose check for $3.00 subscrip- 
tion to Old Maryland. Am sorry I was com- 
pelled to make you wait so long, but have 
finally found a good location in the city of 
Bangor, where I am in hopes of building up 
a good practice. Have been doing well here 
right from the beginning and prospects for the 
future look good. 

Wishing yo'u and Old Maryland success for 
the New Year, I am. 

Fraternally yours, 


Raspeburg, Md., Jan. 8, 1913. 
Dear Doctor Cordell : 

I have written to Dr. Fell expressing- my 
great pleasure at his selection as Provost of 
the University and I feel that I should also 
write to you a sort of congratulatory letter, 
because this great step in advance is, as I 
see it, exactly along the lines which you have 
so long advocated and with such zeal and

energy, especially in the past ten years. I 
look upon this selection as, in a great meas- 
ure, a personal victory for you and it is my 
earnest hope that you may yet live to see your 
labor of love and of years grow more and more 
towards the consummation which you have so 
"devoutly wished." Sincerely yours, 


St. John's College, 

Annapolis, Md. 

President's Room. 
8 January, 1913. 
My dear Dr. Cordell : 

I beg to thank you for your very kind letter, 
expressing your pleasure in my appointment 
as Provost of the University and your prom- 
ise of support in my administration. Nothing 
can lighten the labors of the position more 
than the hearty co-operation of those con- 
nected with it, and I shall be grateful at all 
times for such help as you can give me. 
With kindest regards, I am, 
Very sincerely yours, 

President of St. John's College. 

Ladiesburg, Md., Jan. 8th, 1913. 
Dr. Eugene F. Cordell; 
Dear Doctor : 

I inclose money order for $1.00 in payment 
of the inclosed bill, received yesterday. I am 
always glad to receive Old Maryland. The 
endowment fund has not yet met "the tide, 
which, taken at its flood, leads on to fortune." 
Some philosophical gentleman has remarked : 
"Everything comes to the man who waits." 
So may it be with the fund. I hope so. 
Yours truly, 


Alexandria, Dec. 22, 1912. 
My Professor Eugene Cordell ; 

Sir: — I beg to acknowledge a receipt of your 
letter of the 8th of November. I was glad 
to know that our University is considered 
among the best in the country. None of us 
need feel ashamed of it. I am receiving the 
Old Maryland regularly. 

I have sent an article to the Hospital Bulle- 
tin on the Treatment of Enteritis of Children 
b^ Sea Water. I hope it may interest my 


Professor Mitchell and my colleagues of the 
J ido:se with best wishes and kindest regards. 
Yours faithfully, 

N. KENAWAY, M. D., 1905. 

N. B. — Please send me the Old M.-\ryl.\nd on 
tlie following address : 1 1 Boulevard Ramleh, 

231 Broad Street, Providence, R. I., 

Jan. 11, 1913. 
My dear Doctor: 

I know the enclosed will interest you, both 
personally and as Dean of the Dental Depart- 
ment of the old University. It will show that 
some of the "Boys" are still making good, even 
in New England. 

We have not forgotten the good, sound advice 
given us by our friends, the faculty, and espe- 
cially by the younger element, as Drs. Grieves, 
Davis and yourself. With the exception of a 
very few., the men in this section from the U. 
M. are "making good" — and some are among 
the leaders of the profession. Personally, I have, 
in a financial way, been able to save a penny 
each year. I think that is more than a majority 
of young men can say. 

Perhaps you would be interested to know that 
in the Rhode Island Dental Society one has to 
start on the executive committee and is moved 
up each year, provided he is a hustler and meets 
the approval of the Society. In my case I have 
had no opposition the past two years. We had 
a splendid meeting on Thursday — the best one 
yet — and I hope that the meetings during this 
year will be an improvement over the last one. 

I hope you are enjoying your "Deanship," and 
that the institution will greatly prosper. Will 
you kindly remember me to Drs, Davis, Valen- 
tine and others who may be connected with the 
University known to me. 

With kindest regards, and wishing you all that 
is good, 

Most cordially, 

[In explanation of the above, we would say 
that Dr. Mclntire has just been elected Presi- 
dent of the Rhode Island Dental Society. He 
gra'duated in the class of 1905.] 


The late Dr. John Morris, of Baltimore, claimed 
to be the only living Maryland physician who 
he'd a license of the Medical and Chirurgicai 
Facultv by examination. I saw this in 1898. ' 
It was dated 1845 and was signed by "Joel Hop- 
kins, Praeses," and John L. Yeates, George S. 
Gibson, Alexander F. Dulin, John H. Briscoe, 
Thomas H. Wright and John R. W. Dunbar, all 
M. D.'s. 

Dr. Morris volunteered to go to Norfolk in 
the yellow fever epidemic of 1855 and had a gold 
medal given him by the citizens' there for his 
services. Dr. Robert Thompson, a graduate of 
the University of Maryland, accompanied him. 
Tliey arrived on Friday and by the following 
Tuesday Thompson ' was dead and buried. 
T. was much depressed and drank a great deal, 
while Morris refrained. The latter also had the 
disease. Thompson had been rejected for the 
Navy on account of a deformity of his nose — a 
flat nose. Fifteen corpses were piled in the yard 
of the hotel when they arrived and there were 
no coffins for them. It was necessary to dig a 
trench and bury them in that. Out of a popula- 
tion of 12,000-15,000, 2503 died of fever. '^ ' 

Ashton Alexander (said Dr. Morris, 1899) 
was of magnificent physicpie, a grand old man in 
everything — in manner, charities, kindness, gen- 
tleness and all virtues. A^ery courteous. Of the 
old school. Wore black clothes, knee buckles, 
shoe buckles and stockings. Gold-headed cane. 
Fond of dining and' of wine. Of a florid com- 
plexion, but no red nose. 

The editor of Niles Register has an article 
in that journal, Oct. 31, 1818, in which he says 
that the "Baltiinore Physical Association" has 
just been organized. It was designed to pro- 
mote natural science in Baltimore. Horace H. 
Hayden was secretary 

Dr. John B. Blake, class of 1824, died in 
Washington City, Oct. 26, 1881, aged 79. A 
graduate of Georgetown College. Took great 
interest in the building of the Washington Mon- 
ument : in fact, might almost be called the father

of it, since much of the credit of its resumption 
was due to him. A great entertainer and story- 
teller. Was always relieving distress and speak- 
ing a kindly word for struggling young men. 
Though often deceived, never lost faith in hu- 
manity. For nearly 70 years a citizen of Wash- 
ington. Intimate with Webster, Clay, Benton 
and other leaders and often royally entertained 
them. Kind, sociable, sprightly. Was president 
of the "Oldest Inhabitants' Association." Toner, 
M. S. 

Of Dr. John Buckler, Class of 1817, born 
1795, died 1866, who aspired at one time to be 
the chief surgeon of Baltimore and who was the 
great family physician here for many years, his 
brother, Thomas H. Buckler, said: "He never 
dined out ; never went inside of a church ; never 
went to a theatre or any other place of public 
amusement ; never indulged in games or pleas- 
ures of any kind ; nor did he ever seek relaxation 
by leaving the city at any time for health, pleas- 
ure or recreation." Trans. A. M. A., Vol. 18, 
p. 335. 

In 1883 a student named Jacob M. Davis, who 
had been rejected by the College of Physicians 
and Surgeons of Balto. on final examination, 
sued the college, claiming that the rejection was 
because of the character of his parents. The 
suit was decided against him by Judge Phelps, 
who said : "It was beyond the power of the 
court to issue a mandamus to compel an institu- 
tion of learning to confer a degree upon any per- 
son considered incompetent by the institution in

At a meeting of the Athletic Association 
held before the holidays, H. B. Matthews and 
Philip Moisan were elected manager and as- 
sistant-manager, respectively, of the football 
team for the coming season. As chairman of 
the executive committee, Vice-president Cecil 
awarded monograms and stars to Mellon, 
Welch, Wilson, Clark, Clayton, Claudf, Broad- 
water, McN'utt, Dryden, Gladden, Woodward, 
Selby, and Thompson ; Lewis and Fell received 

The second formal dance in the Cotillion 
Club series was held on Friday, January 10th, 

in the new gymnasium. Professor John B. 
Rippere, Secretary to the Facurty, and Mrs. 
Rippere received. The floor was not crowded, 
the music w^ell selected, and the floor in per- 
fect condition. 

At the quarterly meeting of the Brard of 
Visitors and Governors on Wednesday, Jan. 
8th, formal announcement was made of the 
appointment of Dr. Fell as Provost of the 
University. A committee, consisting of 
Messrs. Munfoe, Tuck, and Chew, designated 
with power to act in the matter, has since rati- 
fied the selection of President Fell. The board 
also received and accepted the resignation of 
Mr. M. W. King as gymnasium instructor. 
Cadets Woodward and Gailey, both capable 
men, have been appointed in his stead. Rep- 
resentatives of the Phi Sigma Kappa appealed 
for the reinstatement of Greek letter fraterni- 
ties, but the matter was referred to committee 
and will be determined at the next meeting. 

The Basket-ball season opened with a de- 
cided victory over Gallaudet College by a 
score of 41-9. Captain Clayton, Mellon, Wil- 
son, and Welch are veterans of the last three 
years and Thompson has played in several 
Varsity games for the last two years. ' ■ 

Cadet Holman has been chosen manager of 
the Mandolin and Glee Club. Cadet AV. R. 
Woodward has been re-elected captain of the 
track team. 

For the Farewell Ball of 1913 the Junior 
class recently elected the following committee : 
Reader, chairman. Noble, Christian, Cecil, 
Smith, D. E., and H. B. Matthews. ' 

The Rat-Tat for this year will be dedicated 
to Phil. H. Tuck, an old St. John's man, mem- 
ber of the board of Visitors and Governors of 
the college and of the Board of Regents of the 
University. • - -

Few, if any, there are among us, who ap- 
proach this dreaded ordeal with light hearts. 
Still smaller is the number who leave the 
dreaded portals of Custom House, "lightly 
tripping," and more, oh ! much more diminu- 
tive still, is the number who get the required 
average. As usual there are many sad stories 
that could be told of what might have been, 
but this is a tale of joy and not of woe, for 
honor and not for condolences, and to those 
who passed we reach forth the hand of con- 

Of those who have worked among us three 
years, passing their, U. of M. requirements and 
receiving their diplomas, we are very proud. 
They have upheld the honor of their school. 
Their success is our boast; but there are others 
to whom we must advance and lay on the 
congratulatory "stuff" with even greater ve- 
hemence and heartiness, if such be possible. 
A'Ve refer especially to Messrs. Edgar Curran, 
W. Melbourne Hart, Gerard Morgan and Rob- 
ert Pfeil from men of our Senior Class who, 
taking time by the forelock, lifted themselves 
mto the ranks of the Barristers as effectually 
as with the aid of our "sheepskins" the rest 
of us are going to try to force an entrance

them we bend the knee ; of them, cherished

"The lines of demarcation between legis- 
tive, executive and j'udicial functions, with 
special reference to the acts of an administra-

The above is the topic assigned to the Se- 
nior Class for its annual "Thesis." The sub- 
ject is one of very present moment, and the 
wisdom of its choice is clearly apparent. The 
whole trend of national policies seems to have 
a jCenter around the determination of this is- 
sue:-^ Will our country be able to retain its 





three-fold checking system of government or 
will it be forced, by factions or otherwise, to 
join two or perhaps the three portions, in or- 
der to secure the rapid action now so much 
desired? What are the lines which separate 
the three departments of our government, 
then, should be a most interesting topic for 
inquiry and study. In the development of this 
subject there is much to be read, much to be

to give the Senior Class talks on the scope of 
this s'ubject, which talks have proven very 
helpful and instructive. - 


The examination in the Law Department 
will begin with the Senior Qass on Jan. 25th 
and finish with the Junior Class on Feb. 1st. 
At present we are all at a point where we 
begin to realize how little we know. The 
library has suddenly taken on a busy atmos- 
phere. Quiet reigns, a most remarkable thing, 
and everyone appears to be busy. Here and 
there we see a junior so intent with feverish 
zeal that he seems to be endeavoring to mem- 
orize the "code ;" the blase intermediate at- 
tempting to concoct some sort of a scheme 
to remember all of the "Writs" and saddest 
of all the poor old serious senior trying to 
figure out "The line of demarcation between 
Conflict of Laws and Federal Procedure with 
special reference to Admiralty, International 
Law and Evidence." We admire and encour- 
age you all. May the suns of February shine 
bright with your success ! We wish you all

Dear Doctor; — 

Certain "^ew York physician,s and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughlj' in- 
vestigate New York piiarmacies and certify to the worth 
of those that meet reasonable modern requirements in 
stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifica- 
tion. The character of work we have been doing for more 
thAntiDenty years B-Ai, yse. hope, thoroughly and firmly 
established us in 5'our esteem and favorably testifies as 
to our abilities and methods. 

Linden and North Aves. 

This unique establishment is fully equipped for, pre-

finished. On Wednesday and Thursday even- 
ings. Prof. Shipley held his mid-year examina- 
tions in Materia Medica. The Bacteriology ex- 
amination was held Dec. 20. 

The Juniors have been keeping Prof. Shipley 
pretty busy during the past few months. In 
early November he operated upon Mr. Ostro 
for appendicitis ; Mr. Ray was next under his care 
with malaria and Mr. Cook was operated upon 
for osteo-myelitis of the femur just prior to the 
Christmas recess. All are now up and about, 
thanks to the students' "friend-.'' 

Mr. McFadden, of the Junior Class, has now 
fully recovered from his attack of typhoid fever, 
which confined him to the University Hospital 
from the latter part of October until December. 

Prof. Ashby's assistants, Drs. White, Brent, 
Willse and R. Mitchell, have started the Gyneco- 
logical cjuizzes, which are to be held weekly from 
now on. 

In order that the students of the Junior Class 
may obtain a good working knowledge of the 

physical signs of Tuberculosis, Drs. McCarthy 
and Robinson are taking their respective sections 
in Physical Diagnosis to the Bay View Hospital. 
There is plenty of material at the L'niversity 
Hospital along this line, but the more advanced 
cases, as found at Bay View, are more easily un- 
derstood by the embryo diagnosticians. 

A very interesting post-mortem was conducted 
under the supervision of Prof. Neale last Tues- 
day. The case was one of Eclampsia and, as 
Prof. Neale has been lecturing- to the Juniors • 
en this subject for the past few weeks, the post- 
mortem was well appreciated. J. W. K.

With the induction of a paid Provost this 
University enters upon a new era. Nothing has 
happened in the whole 105 years of its existence 
that can compare in importance with this step. 
Never before has our organization been com- 
plete ; never have the several departments of the 
LIniversity been united under an authoritative and 
efficient head. Hitherto there has only been the 
semblance of organization, impotent to accomplish 
results, because there was no one to direct, no one 
to lead the way. 

The very fact of having an actual head will 
create a new atmosphere here, will increase our 
self-respect and stir up new hopes, new aspira- 
tions, new resolutions, new efforts. For we real- 
ize that the nerveless methods of the past, the 
mismanagement and the lack of management have 
been done away with and that the University k 
at last oil its feet. 

There is therefore cause for rejoicing among 
all who claim this LTniversity as their alma mater. 

and for renewing our loyalty, and devotion, and 
co-operation in every possible way in promoting 
the success of the efforts of our new Provost. We 
confidently trust that in his hands affairs will be 
managed with wisdom, tact and judgment, and 
let us not forget that in "union there is stiength." 
o — 

As we write this, negotiations are in progress 
looking to a union between the Department of 
Medicine of the LIniversity and the Baltimore 
Medical College. The facultj' of the latter ap- 
pear to be willing, indeed, urgent for it. Tlie 
chief difficulty in the way, as we predicted some 
time ago, is the status of the Maryland General 
Hospital, now the property of the Methodists. 
If that can be arranged to the satisfaction of 
the Faculty of Physic of the LViiversity, the 
schools will probably unite. 

It will practically be an absorption of the col- 
lege, which will lose its name and identity. As 
far as we can learn, it has nothing to turn over. 
The rearrangement of the conjoined faculty will 
require much tact and can hardly be expected to 
give entire satisfaction to, everybody. 

The College of Phj'sicians and Surgeons, which 
has gotten back into the A class, seems to be 
determined to pursue an independent course, but 
everywhere the sentiment is growing, that en- 
dowment and affiliation are necessities and the 
future of such an institution dees not offer much 
encouragement. In Richmond and Memphis the 
schools have amalgamated and the near future 
will witness many more changes and a still fur- 
ther reduction in the number. We are by no 
means enthusiastic, however, over the above union 
and confess that we cannot appreciate its advan- 
tages for us. 


In the midst of our other needs the needs of 
the Training School for Nurses are by no means 
to be forgotten. Under the energetic commit- 
tee of the Faculty of Physic, assisted by the 
various superintendents, this institution has been 
brought to a high degree of efficiency. There 
are now 87 students in attendance and the in- 
stitution is taxed to its utmost to meet the wants 
of this large number of young women. The 
prospects are that it will increase and in the near 
future reach or even pass the hundred-mark. 

Very naturally, therefore, this approaching 


demand must be provided for and the superin- 
tendent, ]\Irs. Ethel P. Clarke, has started a 
movement for a fund for a new "Home" for 
the nurses, in the vicinity of the Hospital. This 
is a great undertaking, but by determination, 
persistence and enthusiasm, is by no means be- 
yond accomplishment. The community now rec- 
ognizes the invaluable services rendered by 
trained nurses, and many would respond by 
greater or less contributions to an appeal for help 
such as is contemplated. The nurse has peculiar- 
ly good opportunities to direct the benefactions 
of the wealthy at a time when they are grateful 
for recovery or about to take their departure into 
another world. Let the "New Nurses' Home 
Fund" be pushed vigorously and every friend 
of the University be called on to give. The 
nurses ought to get many a dollar out of them. 

Dr. \Mnslow concludes the account of his trip 
to Panama, in the last Hasp. Bull., by describing 
a brief visit to Costa Rica. Port Limon, the only 
seaport on the Atlantic side of that Republic, is 
almost due west of Colon, from which it is 
reached in an 18-hour sail. It has no harbor, 
but only an open roadstead dangerous in bad 
weather. - On entering port, the national flag 
was run tip and the band played the national 
hymn, while the customs and quarantine officers 
made their examination. The United Fruit Com- 
panv is the most important factor in the life of 
this town, with its 5,000 inhabitants, its park 
and frame houses, and maintains lines with New 
York and New Orleans. 

Costa Rica is a mountainous country with 
390,000 population, mostly pure Spanish. A 
narrow-gauge runs from Limon across to the 
Pacific Coast. The coffee industry is one of the 
chief sources of revenue. Earthquakes are fre- 
quent and about two }^ears ago Cartago, a town 
of 15,000 inhabitants, was destroyed by one, to- 
gether with Andrew Carnegie's palace for the 
Central American Court. San Jose, the capital, 
situated at an elevation of 5,000 ft., was reached 
after a ride of 105 miles. The situation is beau-

tiful, surrounded by mountains. There are trol- 
lev lines and buzzards are quite at home in the 
streets. The hotel is poor, but the theatre one 
of the finest in the AVestern Hemisphere. There 
is a national museum and a national army of 500. 
The houses are of one-story, with courts, con- 
taining flowers, shrubbery and birds. The cli- 
mate is hot and debilitating on the coast, but 
cool and bracing in the elevated centre. The 
people are polite and courteous. The Pacific 
Coast is the most prosperous. 

On the return voyage a stop of two hours was 
made at Santiago, which allowed a meeting with 
Drs. Brooks and Miranda and the partaking of 
their hospitality in an auto ride through the city. 
(Dr. Winslow tells us that the statement that no 
portion of the French work is included in the 
Panama Canal, made in our Dec. issue, applies 
only to about 7 miles of the Atlantic end, ter- 
minating at Gatun Dam.) 

The annual meeting of the Trustees of the 
Endozi'inent Fund was held at the office of the 
President, Judge Henry Stockbridge, on January 
13. There were present, Judge Stockbridge, Dr. 
Cordell, Dr. Ashby, Dr. Adier, Dr. Hopkinson 
and Mr. Charles Markell. The Treasurer was 
not ready to make his report and it was post- 
poned to a special meeting. 

The following nominations to medical scholar- 
ships, made by the Faculty of Physic, were con- 
firmed : Dr. Samuel Leon Frank scholarship, 
Morris Benjamin Levin, Md., Junior Class ; 
Hitchcock Scholarships, William S. Walsh, R. 
L, Junior Class, and John C. Woodland, Md., 
Sophomore Class ; Randolph Winslow Scholar- 
ship, Charles C. Ayres, Md., Junior Class. 

The President announced that he had re- 
ceived the following communication : 

Baltimore, Dec. 1912. 
"Board of Trustees of Endowment Fund of 

University of Maryland. 
Gentlemen : 

The Association of Nurses connected with 
the Hospital of the LTniversity of Maryland rec- 

Drovers and Mechanics' National Bank 




ognizes the imperative need of a more adequate 
provision for a, home for nurses connected with 
the Training School. As a step to this end they 
propose to inaugurate the estabhshment of a 
Fund which shah ultimately be available for the 
purchase of a site and erection of a building for 
such home, and they desire to place the same 
and all accumulations thereof in your hands uj 
be invested, cared for and expended in accord- 
ance with the following terms : 

1. Any and all sums which shall be contrib- 
uted or donated, or given by way of legacy for 
the purpose above specified, shall be received, 
held and invested by your Board in the same 
manner and with the same degree of responsi- 
bility, and none other, as is the case with other 
funds now in your hands and being administered 
as endowments for the various departments or 
purposes of the University or the scholarships 

2. That no part of the said monies shall be 
used or expended save for the purchase of a 
site, erection, remodeling and repairing of a 
Home for Nurses connected wdth the Traiiiing 
School for Nurses of the University of Mary- 
land ; and no such expenditure of the Fund shall 
be made without the joint concurrence of your 
Finance Committee, the Superintendent of Nurses 
of the Hospital of the University of Maryland 
and the President of the Ntirses' Alumnae As- 
sociation connected with the Hospital. 

3. That no site shall be purchased, building 
erected or repaired for such Home upon which 
there is or shall be any other or greater mortgage 
than may become necessary for the accjuiring of 
such site, the erection, reconstruction or repair 
of a building for such Nurses' Home. 

Yours truly, 

Ethel P. Cl.'\rke, 
Siipt. of Nurses." 

The following action was taken with regard 
to this communication : That the request of the 
Association of Nurses that this Board act as 
custodian of the Fund to be inaugurated for 
the acquisition of a Honie for Nurses connected 
with the Training School be granted. 

The election of officers was then held when all 
the previous incumbents were re-elected, viz : 
President, Judge Henry Stockbridge; Secretary- 

Treasurer, Mr. Charles Markell ; Executive Com- 
mittee, the President, Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. 
John B. Thomas and Dr. B. Merrill Hopkinscn.. 

There being no further business the Board 
adjourned to the call of the President.

Dr. Fell, with his ripe experience as an ed- 
ucator and administrator, is logically the man 
to head the greater university. His stand- 
ing in this regard has been recognized by 
Hampden-Sidney College, Va., and the Uni- 
versity of Pittsburgh, with the degree of doc- 
tor of laws, and by St. John's with the de- 
gree of doctor of civil law. 

Dr. Fell was born in Liverpool, England, 
on July 15, 1851, the son of a staff surgeon 
of the English Army, who was killed in the 
Crimean War. He studied at the Royal In- 
stitution School of Liverpool and later at 
King's College, London. Afterwards he en- 
tered the University of London and later de- 
voted two years to study at the Univer- 
sity of Munich. He came to America and in 
1884 was chosen professor of ancient languages 
at New Windsor College, Md. He was elect- 
ed president of St. John's in 1886 and has been 
very successful in the management of its af- 
fairs. He is a member of the American Philo- 
logical Association, the American Academy 
of Political and Social Science, the National 
Educational Association, the Southern Edu- 
cational Association, the University Club of 
Baltimore, the Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity 
and the Cliosophic Society of Princeton Uni- 
versity. He is also senior member of the 
vestry of St. Anne's P. E. Church of Annapo- 
lis and has represented this body as a dele- 
gate on several occasions at Diocesan conven- 
tions. Last year he served as president of the 
Association of Universities and Colleges of 
the Middle States and Maryland, which held 
its annual meeting at Columbia University, 
New York. 

While St. John's will experience a loss in 


Baltimore and Greene Streets. 



it'S local a-dttiinistration, it will be benefited 
as part of the university by the widened field 
of" Dr. Fell's activity. — St. John's Collegian. 

The sixteenth biennial convention of the Phi 
Sigrna Kappa Fraternity was held in Balto. from 
Dec. 14 to the 16th, the delegates numbering" 
two hundred, representing twenty-six colleges, 
coming from as far north as Canada, as far west 
as California and as far south as Virginia, which 
is the most southern of the chapters. The dele- 
gates were royally entertained by their Balti- 
more brothers, the only complaint being that 
sleep was omitted from the program. 

On Thursday, the 14th, the delegates arrived 
and on the evening of the same day a smoker 
was held in their honor at the Emerson Hotel. 
On Friday, from 5-7 P. M., tea was served at 
the local Fraternity House on Mt. Royal Ave., 
irt honor of the delegates and their friends, five 
hundred attending. At eight P. M., a business 
meeting was held at the Emerson, at which Mr. 
William A. Mclntyre, of Ardmore, Pa., was 
nawed President, to succeed George A. Vogel, 
of- New York. 

On Saturday morning a business meeting was 
held at the same hotel. In the afternoon the 
delegates attended the St. John's-Johns Hop- 
kins football game. 

The convention was brought to a close, Sat- 
urday evening, a banquet being served on the 
seventeenth- floor of the Emerson, but the people 
on. the fourteenth floor had to be assured just 
the same that the Turks and Bulgars were still 
in. Europe and that the strange warcries were 
only twenty-six varieties of college yells. The 
principal address of the evening was delivered 
by Prof. Arthur M. Shipley, who spoke most in- 
terestingly on "The Ideal Relation Between the 
Student and the Fraternity." Toastmaster 
George J. Vogel spoke briefly of the recent prog- 
ress made by the various chapters. Messrs. Al- 
fi-ed' Houston, of St. John's College, and Jas. 
P. Barrett, of New York, a founder of the fra- 
ternity, spoke fetchingly in response to "Toasts."

; O ' ' 


The career of this patriot of the Revolu- 
tion has interested me no little, for he was 
worthy, conscientious and brave and I have 
no doubt that he was a good surgeon for the 
times in which he lived. He was born in King 
St., Berlin, Germany, in 1748, and came to 
America early in the Revolution. There is 
reason to believe, as will appear later, that 
he was among those Hessian troops who were 
hired by petty German princes tOi George III 
to help him in his efforts to reduce to submis- 
sion his rebellious subjects in the American 
colonies. The accounts state that he had been 
"impressed" into the British service and .had 
left it after reaching this country, and that he 
first settled in Bucks Co., Penna. We cannot 
affirm with certainty that he deserted; he may 
have been captured and paroled. But it would 
be no discredit to him had he done so, when 
we consider the circumstances under which 
he had been compelled to fight against those 
who had never harmed him or his country- 
men. He may have been among the 1000 
Hessians, who, on that dreadful morning, 
after a wild Christmas orgy, were surprised 
in their Cjuarters at Trenton and taken prison- 
ers by the despised Washington and • his 
ragged followers. One of the officers captured 
there was Dr. Heinrich Keerl, surgeon, who 
came under parole to Baltimore, was pleased 
with it and settled here as physician, and, like 
Ahl, died here and both indeed by a singular 
coincidence in the same year. Ahl may have 
accompanied Keerl from .Trenton, to Balti- 

The first definite information .we have of 
him here is in 1776, when he arrived in Balti- 



more. As Dr. Charles Frederick A'Veisenthal 
vvas then the examining surgeon of candidates 
lor positions in the medical department of the 
Continental Army, it is quite likely that Ahl 
owed his subsequent appointment to this sur- 

Ahl did not remain long inactive. With 
mat bold, resolute character which he exhib- 
ited in his subsequent career, he determined 
to share his lot with the rebels, and, with this 
design, sought and obtained the position of 
"surgeon's mate," in Colonel Armand's Legion 
of the Pennsylvania Line, under Drs. Laroche 
and Remmickle. In taking this step, since he 
had not been discharged from the British serv- 
ice, he exposed himself to great danger in case 
of capture, and therefore, in accordance with 
the advice of his colonel, and as a matter of 
prudence, he changed his name to "Venall." 
With his corps, he marched northwards, and 
early in the spring of 1777 we find him en the 
Hudson above New York City. 

Ahl made no claim to the freedom from dan- 
ger to which his position as non-combatant en- 
titled him. Like the trained war-horse, he smelt 
the battle from afar and hastened forward with 
joy to take part. When detachments of the 
corps were sent out upon special duty, he accom- 
panied them as volunteer and shouldered his gun 
like the privates. So that without doubt he had 
his share of adventures and hair-breadth es- 

There was about this time with the army of 
the British General Howe a young officer of 
dragoons, who had lately come over the sea. 
Although yet scarcely out of his teens, he was 
full of bravery and ambition and had already 
entered on that career of stormy activity and 
cold-blooded cruelty which later made him the 
terror of the South. It was on the 17th of March, 
1777, that young Tarlton led a party of his horse- 
rnen, bent on robbery and slaughter, up the Hud- 
son to White Plains. Here in the previous Oc- 
tober had the Hessian troops, under the brave 
but unfortunate Von Rail, who some weeks later 
was captured and killed at Trenton, distino-uished 

Menu, Banquet and Dance Cards, Commencement Invitations 
and Programs, Diplomas, Certificates, Engrossino- u of M

Cards, etc., for Physicians, Lawyers and Dentists. '

themselves by attacking and driving the Ameri- 
cans from the heights. Tarlton was, moreover, 
stimulated to bold deeds by his recent capture 
of General Charles Lee in New Jersey. This 
officer had been surprised in an inn which was 
in sight of the American army and safely car- 
ried off to the enemy's camp. 

What now exactly happened we know not — 
whether Ahl's whole command or only a part 
of it was engaged. We know that he "defend- 
ed" the wounded, and it is thereby well to be 
understood that he stood up manfully for them. 
However it was, one of Tarlton's pitiless drag- 
oons split his skull with his sabre and left him 
upon the ground unconscious and weltering in 
his blood. From this dreadful blow Ahl suf- 
fered to the last day of his long life. Only after 
months did his young and powerful constitution 
restore him again to health and was he well 
enough to again fulfill his military duties. 

He now sought and obtained a position else- 
where, with the Brigade of Muhlenberg, under 
a commission of Congress. It may be conjec- 
tured that it was the famous German regiment, 
Muhlenberg's own, to which he assigned 
and that he saw with it many of the battles in 
which it participated (Brandywine, Germantown, 
Monmouth, Yorktown, etc.), and we may be 
sure that he was not far from the fighting line. 
And so he discharged his duty with all zeal and 
faithfulness until Nov. 6, 1783, when the war 
ended in a satisfactory peace and he was dis- 
charged with honor from the service. 

He then went to New York Git}' with the in- 
tention of returning to his native country. But 
this step was so evidently unwise and impru- 
dent and accompanied by such danger, that he 
abandoned it. He settled for a time in Virginia 
and after some years i-emoved to Westmoreland 
Co., Penna., not far from Pittsburgh. In 1818, 
Congress passed an act recognizing the claims 
of the heroes of the Revolution, under whicn 
Ahl received an "invalid pension"' as "surgeon's 
mate in the Pennsylvania Line"' on Mar. 20, 
1781. Pie was now 73 and without doubt this 
small addition to his resources was highly ac- 
ceptable to the old patriot. His wound now 
caused him much pain and he was compelled 
to take large doses of anodynes to obtain even 
partial relief. Therefore he resolved to seek 
relief in surgery, and, accordingh', he came from 



Pennsylvania to Baltimore, where he hoped to 
be "trepanned" and thus to get rid of the sup- 
posed pressure and irritation of the brain. 
Whom he consulted we do not know ; probably 
Jameson, who was from York, Penna., and whose 
reputation as a bold, original and successful 
surgeon, was rapidly increasing. But it is al- 
most certain that the operation was not done, 
as there is no record of it. So it is probable that 
our hero continued to suffer from the sabre 
stroke of Tarlton's dragoon to the end of his 

In spite of Ahl's age, he continued to show 
an interest in his profession and we find his 
name among the members and licentiates of the 
Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland. 
It appears also in the Baltimore City Directory 
of 1824 and 1827, as "retail apothecary" and his 
shop was on Eutaw St., opposite the present 
Camden Station ("Eutaw and Race St."). It 
was here that he died on July 13th, 1827. Dr. 
Ahl was a Lutheran minister according to the ac- 
counts, but I have no evidence of his connection 
with that denomination while he lived here. His 
name is in the list of members of Otterbein 
Church, United Brethren in Christ, corner Con- 
way and Sharp Sts., and he was buried in the 
graveyard of that church. He left no will. His 
wife Christina was administratrix of his estate, 
but no account was ever filed. There were four 
sons and two daughters. One of the former, 
also John, became a physician ; he was educated 
in Baltimore and died at Newville, Pa., April 
9, 1882. Dr. John Alexander Ahl, son of the 
last-named, attended the University of Md. and 
Washington Medical College, Balto., graduating 
at the latter in 1838. He was highly successful 
in practice and in business — milling, real estate, 
paper-making, iron manufacturing, etc. After 
a time he gave up practice for business. He 
was a member of the 35th Congress, 1856. There 
are many descendants of Dr. John Peter Ahl in

Baltimore, Md, 

Dr. Thomas Fell, who has just been ap- 
pointed provost of the University of Maryland, 
ranks deservedly high among the college presi- 
dents of the United States. His fruitful work 
at old St. John's is not to be interrupted,, -fejAt 
he is to extend the benefit of his skill and ex- 
perience to the new and large problems wWch 
confront the University. 

There is no doubt that the University needs 
a strong executive if it is to emerge from the 
rather casual methods of organization into 
which it has drifted and is to hold its own 
in the tenser struggle which such institutions 
must wage if they are to survive in these 
days. Development of new and ambitious 
plans for this venerable institution is an en- 
couraging sign of its vitality, and gives good 
ground for hope and faith in its iuture^-^News^

In presenting to the Medical and Chirurgical 
Faculty an oil portrait of Dr. John Francis M:on-- 
monier, '34, the gift of his children, Dr. Corddl 
spoke of this worthy physician's family, life and 
services. He was descended from a French fam- 
ily — Montmonier de Sconbecque-^that traced its 
origin to the Crusades. His grandfather came to 
Baltimore from the Island of San Domingo, at 
the time of the insurrection of the negroes there 
in 1793. 

Dr. Monmonier was born in 1813, .and diet! in 
1894. He received his academic degree at St. 
Mary's College and his medical degree at the 
University, where he had for instructors Nathan 
R. Smith, Eli Geddings, Robley Dunglison, Na- 
thaniel Potter, Richard Wilmot Hall and Jule.s 
Timoleon Ducatel. Dr. Cordell gave some in- 
teresting details of conditions prevailing at the 
University at that date. His activities were va- 
ried. He was City Councilman, President of the 
Board of School Commissioners, Physician to the 
Board of Health, and Professor in .the Washing- 
ton University School of Medicine. He was orator 
and President of the Medical and Chirurgical 
Faculty, and as chairman of its Executive Com- 
mittee, from 1858 to 1869, he rendered it con- 
spicuous service by preserving its organization 
and caring for its property. 

Dr. Monmonier was tall, of medium buiid, 
with small, keen eyes, large mouth, sh-avenu;ppt?r 



lip, deliberate in manner, precise and effective in 

Dr. iVIonmonier died at his residence, Calvert 
and Read streets, of the infirmities of age. 

At the same meeting Dr. Chew presented a por- 
trait of Dr. John Buckler, '17, 1795-1866, the 
great family physician of Baltimore.

him until he was pulled off by his brother. 
The fellow was arrested, but was bailed out 
on $500 bond for the action of the court. —

GINIA, I829-3J. 

[These letters have an added interest from the 
fact that the writer lost his life at the hands of 
John Brown and his party, in Oct., 1859. He 
was shot through the breast from the engine 
house at Harper's Ferry, where the insurgents 
had taken their stand, and died soon after. Al- 
though he has so much to say about the ladies, 
he never married.] 

The first is dated Nov. 11, 1829, and is ad- 
dressed to his young sisters at school at Emmits- 
burg. It is in the high moral style prevalent at 
that day and full of good advice. As showing 
the character of the mail service then, it may be 
mentioned that it was received 11 days after it 
was v.Titten, 

Jan. 22, 1830. He sends his father the results 
of the examination of his class, just held. His 
standing is better than he expected. The sub- 
jects' of examination were drawing, "chymistry" 
and natural philosophy. The course had been a 
very difficult one and he had not written a let- 
ter, read a paper or spent an idle evening for some 
time. Tlie subjects of study for the remainder 
of the year were electro-magnetism, optics, as^ 
tronomy, drawing and chemistry, with a review 
of the year preparatory to examination in June. 
He holds an office in the corps which relieves him 
from a portion of the military duty and allows 
more time for study. "We have had the small- 
pox on the Point, but the precautions taken by 
our surgeon happily prevented its reaching the 

March 4, 1830, to his father: "There have 
been several coiirt-martials here lately. I wa.'^ 
extremely sorry to hear that our very kind friend. 

Col. R. Jones, was involved in some difficidty 
with Maj. Gen. Macomb. Whatever may be the 
nature of the charge — which will be made known 
to us officially only with the decision of the court_ 
— I sincerely hope that he may be honorably ac- 
quitted. One officer I know — at present stationed, 
at this place — and I think there are others, has 
been removed from Washington, on account of 
a delicacy felt by their wives to associate with 
the lady of our Secretary. As it would be rather, 
unusual to court-martial a colonel for an offence 
committed b_v his wife, I presume. Col. J.'s de- 
linquency is of a different nature. 

"You have doubtless disapproved of the course 
which some of the debates have taken in the Sen- 
ate this year. Though well calculated to elicit 
the finest efforts of some of the ablest members, 
I think it was equally well calculated to compro- 
mise the dignity of the Senate and to encourage 
and rejuvenate political and sectional . prej,udiGeg. 
The brilliancy of the efforts which have, already 
rhed a lustre over the session can scarcely make 
amends for injury of this sort. Honest industry 
appears to me preferable to perverted geniiis, 
Mr. Crockett appears very anxious to. send us 
all o& from this place. It not infrequently oc- 
curs that we know not the value of blessings 
until we lose them. Should we become involved 
in war, I imagine the people would estimate more 
highly the value of this Academy. It is, I be^ 
lieve, the only school in the country where en- 
gineering is regularly taught and almost the only 
one where it can be. Instruction in the sciences 
is at no other institution in America near so 
thorough as at this. And the attempts made 
elsewhere to inculcate practically the rigid dis- 
cipline of military life and to give instruction 
in the higher branches of tactics, when the au- 
thority of the instructors was not supported by 



the powerful principle of self-interest and by the 
strong- arm of the Government, have proved al- 
niO'Sf jjitterly abortive. You have probably, dear 
Papa,' iseeh the pamphlet which has been issued 
during' the course of the winter with regard to 
this place. I read it sometime since and can 
say, on my own knowledge, that many of the 
stat^^aents cont-a-ined in it are untrue and the con- 
clusions deduced entirely false. Truth, where 
she appears, is presented wrong-side foremost — 
if I may use the expression — with her features 
so distorted as scarcely to be recognizable. The 
author is without doubt Captain Partridge, who 
vv'as succeeded, as Superintendent of this place, 
by Col. Thayer and who is very far from havh;g 
recovered from the violent offence which he took 
on. that occasion. 

"Amid my occupations here, my dear Father, 
I never cease to^ regret that I can not relieve you 
of .the many cares and toils of business. I would 
willingly leave them all for that purpose. Your 
truly affectionate letters I hail as the greatest 
boon I can receive and they never fail to remind 
me aiiew of all my g66d resolutions. I fre- 
cjuently reflect on the subject of a profession for 
life,' but always come to the conclusion that the 
circumstances which will most materiallv affect 
the selection are not yet sufficiently developed 
to indicate a choice." 

He adds in this letter a P. S. to Miss Philippa, 
a connection containing some tender expressions. 
Jt is rather rare for a young man to write a post- 
script 'to his sweetheart in his father's letter. 
He refers to Miss Portia, her sister: "So Miss 
Portia is actually arid positively married. Well, 
the idea seems rather strange when I call her 
to nifnd romping and playing on the green lawn 
at Wheatland, she slapping riiy cheeks and I pull- 
mg out her combs and disarranging her beauti- 
ful, locks. She was then, I may say, a girl and 
I but a little boy." 

March 30, 1830, to his father. The Equinoc- 
tial storm had just occurred and had been suc- 
ceeded by balmy spring weather. He is looking 



The Chas. Willms Surg-ical Instrument Co. 

forward with impatience to the next examination, 
which would make him a first classman with but 
one course of studies before him. The second 
year studies, which he was now reviewing, were 
the most difficult and longest of the four. The 
first year course was comparatively easy and the 
privileges considerable. 

May 6, 1830, to his sisters: "Spring, with all 
her brightest decorations, encompassed by the 
most delightful perfumes, diffusing' pleasure and 
exciting brilliant hopes and cheerful gaiety, is 
just hailirig'ais here.' The prospects around us 
are of the finest order. The dense woods on the 
monntain-sides present the most charming ap- 
pearance.' The}' look mellow and rich. Surely 
sparing is the time for innocent pleasure, for re- 
iiewal of hope, of friendly feeling, of good reso- 
liitions and of gratitude. We enjoy the spring 
and fall seasons here without fear of sickness, 
one of the usual attendants at least of the Fall 
to the South. We enjoy fine health here, at pres- 
ent, and anticipate a great deal of pleasure during 
the course of the summer. Our encampment has 
its pleasures as well as its toils and I look for- 
ward with no common zest to their coming, after 
five or six months hard study in Barracks. How 
delighted should I be if you could come up here 
on a flying trip. LTpon my return I hope to have 
the pleasure of attending you on such an ex- 
cursion. I frequently catch myself dreaming 
about a second glimpse of the rosy cheeks and 
bright eyes of the Old Dominion. The year will 
soon pass." 

"You appear both to have been highly pleased 
— as I was sure you would be — with your visit 
to Mt. Vernon." (The families were nearly 
related.) "It is not only a most beautiful spot, 
combining the gifts of nature with those of 
art, but well calculated to excite emotions of 
the highest order. The bosom which would not 
thrill with sentiments of gratitude,' of pride and 
of philanthropy on reflecting on the characters 
of its former inmates would possess but little 
sensibility. The bones of General and Mrs. Wash- 
ington, it appears, are at length to be removed. 
A country's gratitude is a debt often of tardy 
payment, but, as it is gained only by sterling 
merit, so is its value inappreciable. The land- 
scape, as you observe, Christine, from the Mt. 
\'ernon mansion house is very fine, though not 



so good as I have seen elsewhere or as I see 
here every day. The prospect here, besides the 
advantages of that at Mt. Vernon, possesses 
greater variety and is more extended. The coun- 
try seats on the bank of the Hudson are the most 
beautiful that I have ever seen and I imagine 
scarcely exceeded in richness and variety of pros- 
pect of any in the world. I am told that about 
Boston the scenery is equally fine. I anticipate 
a great deal of pleasure from a visit to that part 
cf the country, either upon graduating or be- 

June 17, 1830, to his father: "The dullness 
of campi life is generally diverted in the evening 
after supper, in spite of fatigue, by a dance — a 
stag dance for want of ladies. Our rustic amuse- 
ment has, however, frequently attracted the at- 
tention and attendance of our fair visitors at 
the hotel, and thev have more than once con- 
descended to honor. us by joining in the amuse- 
ments with much zest." 

"I had intended inquiring of you in this let- 
ter some of the principal distinctions between 
the principles of the old Federal and Democratic 
]iarties, but in perusing Mr. Wirt's life of Henry, 
I have found them there concisely enumerated." 

"The examination is not yet over, though that 
of my class was concluded two or three days 
since and we are now enjoying the enviable 
ofiiitn cum dignitate. The rolls have not yet 
been published. In my next I will inform you 
of my standing." 

Another postscript to Miss Phil. 

Camp Eaton, W. Point, July 2d, 1830, to his 
father: "I fear you will be sorry to hear that 
I have lost my old standing in general merit 
by one — being now 7th, whereas I was before 
6th. Give yourself no uneasiness for my feel- 
ings on the occasion, my dear father, for I am 
quite unconcerned at it, though I hope not culpa- 
bly so. Mr. Prentiss, the gentleman who has 
risen me, tells me that he has seen the aggre- 
gates of the marks on the different branches and 
that he exceeded me but by a single unit. Pre- 
viously to the last examination I was above Mr. 


Manuf'jcturers of 

P. in philosophy and chemistry and below him 
in drawing. Though I have not seen the rolls 
on the particular branches since the examina- 
tion, I am under the impression that I am still 
above him in philosophy and chemistry, but that 
he has risen and I have fallen in drawing, for 
which I have but little taste, though it is here 
ranked equally with chemistry. Tlie first seven 
are Park, Allen, Clay, Peyton, Norton, Prentiss, 
Turner. A difiference of standing of one or 
two, about my place in the class, I have learned 
to consider not very important. I pray God to 
extend you peace and happiness. Your tenderly 
attached son, G. W. T."

One of the ways in which the standard of 
a school is tested is by the records made by 
its, .graduates. While it is undoubted that the 
Law School of the University of Mar.ylan_d is 
in the front rank with other law schools 
throughout the country, it is very pleasing 
when evidence of the efficacy of pur training 
is brought to our attention. The following 
is a letter which Mr. Hunter, who is the Secre- 
tary to Judge Harlan, has received . from- Mr. 
Virtume P. A. Ouinn, who , studied law at our 
school. The message contained therein speaks 




for itself. It is hoped that Mr. Ouinn's future 
may be rewarded with the same success which 
has marked his first step in his chosen profes- 
sion. ,

I took the Connecticut bar exams, in De- 
cember. and passed them suceessfully and was 
adpitted to practice law in this State on Janu- 
ary 14th, 1913. Much' credit is due the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, in my opinion, for ten 
Yale men failed for the second time. This 
was my first attempt and I was successful.

The President of the Democratic Club has 
been in receipt of several letters from, the In^ 
augural Committee for President Wilson's .in- 
auguration inviting the students of the Uni- 
versity to. take part in the "Students' Division." 
of the parade. Johns Hopkins has decided to 
send a delegation and Princeton and a num- 
ber of other colleges and tmiversities will be 
represented. The matter has been taken up 
with the Faculty, but we are informed has re- 
ceived little encouragement there, but the of- 
fer remains and if any department of the Uni- 
\'ersity desires to be represented it may do so. 
1 he students. will, wear cap and gowns and be 
decorated with a sash bearing their school col- 
ors and other emblems. The entire outfit will 
cost $2.Q.O and can be hired in Washington 
from firms who have received contracts for 
tliis costuming. The men who do take part 
will be able to see the pageant from an es- 
pecially advantagous position. Marching down 
Pa. Avenue in the parade, they will have an 
opportunity to. look at all the decorations, 
which certainly cannot be done from the side- 
walks, and after arriving at the Capitol they 
will be placed in such a position as to be able 
to review the military section of the parade, 
which will immediately follow them in line. 

The Committee of Arrangements for this Di- 
vision of the parade inform us that a school 
cannot be represented unless it has at least 
twenty men ready to march. If there are an}^ 
men in other Departments that are interested 
in this matter, more information can be given 



them by addressing- a communication to the 
President of the Democratic Club, either at 
the Law School or in care of Dr. Cordell. 

The Senior Class at the Law School are es- 
pecially pleased to announce that they have 
Secured Mr. Albert C. Ritchie to speak to them 
oh the fuilctions of 'the Public Service -Com- 

'^mission. Mr. Ritchie as is well known was 
Assistant Counsel for this Commission and 

"made quite a record for himself in that ca- 

His address on the functions of the Commis- 

■ B!on should be particularly interesting to all 
the students, but especially wilLit be of in- 
terest to the members of the Senior Class in- 
asmuch as it will serve to give them a line 

'on their Thesis topic, which' is, as has been 

■ before announced in these columns, "The lines 

■ rif demarcation between Executix-e, Judicial 
and Legislative functions of government, with 
special reference to the acts of a municipal 
board or commission." The Public Service 

■ Commission is such a commission as is con- 
• lemplated in this subject and Mr. Ritchie will 

have an interested audience of Seniors. All 
students at the University are most heartily 
invited to attend as well as any of our collegi- ' 
ate brothers at St. John's.

Up to the preseht time over fifty applications 
have been receivecl by Dr; Coale' for places as 
Senior Internes in the University Hospital for 
the coming year. Accommodations are made 
for only forty,' so undoubtedly Some of the 
men are to be disappointed in not bsiiig able 
to secure an appointment. To obviate such an 
occtirrencei happening in the future and also 
that every 'future member of' the Senior Class 
may fare equally with his fellows as regards 
hospital work, it has been stated on good au- 
'thority, that "after May 1914, each succeeding ' 
Senior Class will be divided into four sections, 
"each section to pu't in three months in the hos- 

Menu, Banquet and Dance Cards, Commencement Invitations 
and Programs, Diplomas, Certificates, Engrossing U of M

pital. As matters stand at present, a great in- 
equality exists as regards the house men. Many 
of the students reside in Baltimore and to en- 
ter the Hospital would be a great additional 
expense. Moreover, as happens this year, all 
who desire the positions cannot be placed. 
Should the proposed project be made a reality 
by the Faculty, it will meet with the warm ap- 
- probation of the students. Prof. Shipley, who 
is always working for the interests of the stu- 
dents, is reported to be the father of the move- 
ment. , 

Commencing Saturday, Feb. 1, and every 
Saturday thereafter until the close of the col- 
lege year, Prof Spear will hold clinics at Bay

It is safe to say that by far the vast ma- 
jority of the students were vaccinated during 
the past smallpox scare. No ill results fol- 
lowed except in two cases. Mr, Norbert 
Nitsch, president of the Senior Class, shortly 
after -being vaccinated suffered a reaction ; his 
arm swelling considerably and necessitating 
lancing. Mr. Mordecai, of the Junior Class, 
also suffered some ill results, which forced him 
to spend a few days in the University Hospital. 
From latest reports both are progressing very 

The room opposite the Dean's office, which 
heretofore has been idle, has been completely 
renovated in anticipation of the Provost's com- 
ing. Dr. Fell may feel assured that he will 
be royally welcomed by the students and that 
he will have their earnest co-operation in every 
manner possible. 

The regular monthly meeting of the Ran- 
dolph Winslo-»v Surgical Society was held Mon- 
day evening, Jan. 26, in Davidge Hall, the 
President, Mr. Breeding, presiding. After the 
regular business transactions, papers were read 
by Mr. Callahan- and Mr. Breeding. The sub- 
"ject of Mr. C-allahan's paper was "The Treat- 
ment of Cholelithiasis." Mr. Breeding's topic 
was "Thyroidectomy." The following mem- 
bers of the Junior Class were recently elected 
to membership in the society: Messrs. Vin- 



son, Byers, Denny, Johnson, Katzenberger. 
Walsh, Warner, Bradley, Mordecai, Hicks, 
Metcalfe, and Lemba'ugh. 

The next meeting will be held Monday, Feb. 
2'i, at which meeting three papers of surgical 
mterest will be read, to be followed by a gen- 
eral discussion. 

Prof. Hirsh is adding materially to the 
Junior Pathology course by means of stereop- 
ticon lectures which are to be held weekly in 
the Chemical Hall. 

It is with much regret that the students note 
the continued absence of two of their much 
esteemed professors — Drs. Hemmeter and C. 
Mitchell. In their absence, Dr. Conser is help- 
ing the Sophs osmose Physiology while Prof. 
Zueblin is holding the Junior Medical Clinics 
m lieu of Prof. Mitchell. Prof. Hirsh is lec- 
turing to the Seniors on Diseases of Children. 

While it is generally stated that the stu- 
dents of the U. of M. are lacking in college 
spirit, still, if that accusation be true, it is be- 
cause the rowdyism coincident with painting 
the town red and other such unbecoming con- 
duct, which to the scandalized laity are get- 
ting to be regarded as a part of a college edu- 
cation, are foreign to this University. The 
men studying at the University are for the 
most part serious, they come here to work and 
not to play and so frivolity and actions which 
bring not credit, but disgrace to themselves 
and this school are unknown or at least not 
countenanced. But the students are fired with 
college spirit, not the wild type, but that which 
has for its object the betterment of their 
school. The abolition of hazing, the Honor 
System and many other reforms of like nature 
. were almost wholly student moves. Nor 
could the spirit of the students be better ex- 
emplified than by the joy with which the an- 
nouncement that the University was again 
listed as a class A school was received. The 
men have always felt that they were receiving 
a course equal to that given in any other col- 
lege, yet there are Thomases like the Biblical 





Thomas and the now proverbial Missourian 
who must be shown and now we are able to 
show them in black and white, and to spread 
the good word along'. The University is more 
a Southern school, not known very well in the 
T^^orth, yet not unknown. In this regard one 
of the University's present students happened 
to be talking with one of the graduates of the 
liest known medical school in Massachusetts 
and whose opinion was most apt to be biased 
concerning the worth of the University. "Yes," 
he said, "since you've decided to go there to 
school I've been making inquiries and a fellow 
practitioner tells me that it is quite as good 
as Hopkins.'' We have always kept that 
opinion deep in our hearts, nor are we slow to 
speak it out at times. As the poet said, "What's 
in a name?'' Yet there is much that the hun- 
gry poet ne'er dreamed in his dreamy dreams 
of pen and that's what we are striving for, to 
help push the University along the high road 
TO fame and name, and when by the Grace of 
God and the Faculty we are blessed with our 
sheepskins, to be apostles and help sow the 
good seed. AVe have no big endowments, no 
fancy laboratories — yet withal we are supreme- 
ly happy. And that the University does not 
only turn out well educated men could not be 
better attested than by the following incident: 
On a train bound for Philadelphia, a former 
student of our college chanced to strike up a 
conversation with a young fellow. ■ Among 
ether subjects, the talk turned to that of col- 
leges and when our man mentioned that he was 
from the University, his new found friend 
Vv-as much elated. "I've been studying at a 
college in Philadelphia," he said, "and you 
know your team played ours last year. I'm 
sorry — partly so — to say that your team lost, 
but notwithstanding bad decisions that would 
make one feel like chasing the uinpire off the 
field, your men acted like real gentlemen in 
every way. I've been thinking of studying 
medicine and so I've decided that if your Uni- 
versity can send such men to represent them 
in the baseball team, that all the rest of the 
men must be gentlemen and the college a good 
college." So we are not only known by our 
works, but by our actions, and actions speak 



louder than words or works and when the poet 
taid that latter he wasn't dreaming. 

The news from the Freshman, Sophomore, 
Junior and Senior Classes is very melancholy, 
but we hope that after the smoke of the battle 
clears away they will need no Marc Antony 
for eulogy purposes. Examinations dim the 
horizon. For Freshmen it is practical anat- 
omy, for the Sophs, physiological lab., for the 
Juniors, clinical lab., and for the Seniors, sur- 
gery. "Outside of that we're all right."

The Pennsylvania Branch of the General

and banquet at the Continental Hotel, Philadel-

H. Adier, President, presiding. Professor Ran- 
dolph Winslow delivered the address, . in which 
he spoke especially of the changes taking place 
in the University, of the new Provost and the 
improvements which are making of it a new in- 
stitution, of our hopes, our aspirations and our 
needs. A very fine supper was partaken of, after 
which the following officers were elected : Presi- 
dent, James E. Clawson, M. D., "55, of Phila. ; 
i'ice-Pres., William H. Lowell, D. D. S., '86, 
of Lancaster; Scc.-Treas., John C. C Beale, D.

we understand, will be held at York. 

In defining the term "full-time instructor," as 
applied to medical colleges, in answer to a query 
by Dr. Harry Leffman, of Phila., the Journal 
of the American Medical Association throws light 
on this question, which is one of great present 
interest to the schools. The following terse def- 
inition is given: "Tlie 'full-time teacher' is one 
whose work is in the college ; his private library 
is there ; his research work is there ; his interests 
are there; he can be readily found by the stu- 
dents tO' whom his work is a constant inspira- 
tion. Instead of the empty, lifeless laboratory 



of former 'times' headed by the busy practitioner 
" the 'full-tinie teacher's laboratory is an ' active

of his efforts with hope and a large degree of 



'Of. interest at this time is the account of the 
dedication of the Trees Gymnasium and Athletic 
Field of the University of Pittsburgh, on Oct. 
3, 1912. At a dinner' given tO~ the Football Team 

■on Dec. 2, 1910, Mr. J. C. Trees-, of the class of 
1895, announced his intention of giving $100,000 
for the purpose of erecting a" gymnasium and 
constructing a new athletic field. The work was 
begun in April, 1911, and was completed at, the 
opening of the present session. A pamphlet is- 
sued bv the university gives an interesting illus- 
trated account, of the proceedings, accompanying 
the dedication,' including the address of Robert 
Tait McKenzie,- Director of Physical Training, 
University of Penna., the donor and others. Hear 
what- Mr. Trees- said: "The Gymnasium; and 
Field were given to the university,, first because 
I love 'Old'U.'of P.'; second because at the, time 

. I felt that, of all the cr3ang needs, it' was the 
one most pressing ; and last, because. I wanted 
in some substantial manner to repay part of the 
debt I owe her.'" When will our "Trees" make 

ns appearance : 

A great event on the Pacific Coast, a\\ epoch 
in the progress of far western medicine, was the 
dedication of tlie Lane Medical Library of Le- 
land Stanford Jr. Uiiiz'ersity, at Sau Francisco, 
en Nov. 3, 1912. Tl-ie building was erected with 
funds provided by Dr. Levi Cooper Lane and 
Pauline C. Lane, his wife, amounting to $40,000 
in money and one-third of real estate valued at 
$150,000, supplemented by funds contributed by 
the University Trustees. 

The library now numbers 40,000 volumes, 
being the largest of any of the university libraries 
in America and the seventh in size of all the 
medical' libraries in the country. The building 
was constructed of grey sandstone on a- stee! 
frame. Handsome mural paintings ■ adorn the 
reading room. The stock rooms are fireproof 
and can' be cut off by metal doors from the rest 
of the building. There are accommodations for 
80,000 volumes and indefinite extension, with 
special libraries and reading rooms. 

We can well excuse our California brethren 
and the authorities of the western university for 



the outburst of pride, of exultation, of boastful- 
ness, that characterized this event. We congratii- 
late them on their great acquisition, which is 
one step towards that three-fold metropolitanism 
— New York, Chicago, San Francisco — toward 

which they aspire. -■

gives "the Source, Chemical and Physical Prop- 
erties, Therapeutic Action, Dosage, Antidotes and 
Incompatibles of all Additions to the newer Ma- 
teria Medica likely to be called for on Prescrip- 
tions, with name and address of the manufac- 
turer or proprietor and in case of Foreign Arti- 
cles, of the American Agent." It will prove a 
handy help to the physician and pharmacist and 
should be kept close at hand for reference. This 
is in the line of helpfulness to the profession 
which characterizes everything that this firm does.

In the insurance of Iiis life for the benefit of 
the University, Dr. Hemmeter has set an exam- 
ple that should be followed by others. In no 
v.'ay can a friend of the University fielp it so ef- 
fectuallv as by this means. The annual tax is 
moderate and not burdensome, the ultimate profit 
is comparatively large, much larger than could 
be realized by any ordinary subscription. The 
idea is not a new one — it has been suggested 
before, but it is difficult to induce those wiho^ 
ought to be interested to adopt it. We hope that 
some will be impressed with its advisability and 
act accordingly.

Baltimore, Md. 

The Annual Baltimore Alumni Banquet .of 
St. John's College (Department of Arts _and 
Sciences) was held at the Hotel Belvedere, Bal- 
timore, Feb. 15. Mr. Philemon H. Tuck was 
elected President and Judges John P. Briscoe. 
James P. Gorter, Henry D. Harlan, Walter I. 
Dawkins and H. Arthur Stump were elected 
Vice-Presidents. J. H. C. Kemp was made,- Sec- 
retary and Peter P. Blanchard Treasurer. The 
banquet having been disposed of, Judge Dawkins, 
Retiring President and Toastmaster, called upon 
the various speakers, Mr. Tuck, Dr. Fell, Dr. 
Winslow, Mr. John S. Newman, '90, of Freder- 
ick, Mr. Addison E. Mullikin, '95, Professor 
Gunn and Mr. John S. Gates. Much was said 
in praise of the action of the Regents in electing 
Dr. Fell to the Provostship. Dr. Fell expressed 
his gratification at being selected to guide. the 
destinies of the University. The esprit de corps 
of St. John's men is never lacking at these meet- 
ings or indeed at any other tirne, and manifested 
itself in the usual enthusiastic way. The Execu- 
tive Committee for the year consists of Freder- 
ick Sasscer, Dr. Wirt A. Duvall, Dr. J§mes A. 
Nydegger, L. B. K. Claggett, Edwin Warfield, 
Jr., and John T. Harrison. There were 62 sub- 
scribers to the banquet. , , 

The question of admitting zvomen to profes- 
sional schools has its advocates and opponents. 
Theoretically it is still sub judice, practically it 
has been successfully tested. In our own institu- 
tion women have been admitted in the depart- 
ments of pharmacy and dentistry for some y^^grs 
and they have not proven objectionable; indeed 
their companionship seems to have exercised a 
rather beneficial efifect upon students of the other 
sex, who are more or less restrained in their 
conduct thereby. The Johns Hopkins has made 
a full trial of men in its medical school, and while 
they may not have proved altogether welcome 
to the teachers, they certainly have not interfered 
in any way, so far as we can see, with the pros- 
perity of that institution. Why should they not 
be admitted tO; the law and rnedical departments 
of the University of Maryland? What greater 
objection is there to their taking up the study 
of law, than that of pharmacy or dentistry? We 
know of one lady who is exceedingly ^anxious 



to pursue the law course here and there are oth- 
ers, no doubt, since women are aspiring in this 
as well as other directions hitherto monopolized 
by men. There are no serious objections to it 
on the grounds of propriety and 'morals and there 
are manifest advantages on financial grounds. Both 
the law and medical departments could increase 
their income by it annually by several thousand 
dollars. Why not open these departments tO' 
them ? The trend of events is strongly in the 
direction of greater privileges and opportunities 
for women. Why not exercis.e a little foresight 
and wisdom by meeting the tide halfway and ben- 
efiting bv it at once? 

The report of the Endowment Fund will be 
a disappointment to many who^ hoped or expect- 
ed that it would reach or closely approximate 
the $50,000 mark. Tlie deficiency appears in the 
Hemmeter Fund. When Judge Stockbridge, act- 
ing Provost, announced last Academic day that 
Dr. Hemmeter had contributed $5,300 to the fund 
for his chair, $5000 in securities and $300 in cash, 
the nature of the securities was not known. It 
turned out that they consisted of a life insurance 
policy. This of course cannot be included in the 
report of the fund and explains why the Hemme- 
ter Fund is $4,239.86 instead of "about $10,- 
000.", The chief increase in the Ftmd was in 
the "Fac. of Physic Fund" and is due largely 
to Dr. Randolph Winslow's efl^orts in behalf of 


Dear Doctor: — 

Certain !^ew York physicians an<J pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which Is to thoroughly in- 
vestigate New Yorli pharmacies and certify to the worth 
of those that meet reasonable modern requirements in 
stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment vv'ould amply entitle us to such certifica- 
tion. The character of work we have been doing for more 
than hoenty years has, we hope, thoroughly and firmly 
established us in your esteem and favorably testifies as 
to our abilities and methods.

the Pathological department. The increase in 
the General Fund was $646.68 ; as the Chairman 
of th€ Committee on Endowment added $315 to 
that Fund, the rest of this $648.68 must have 
been derived from interest. 

The Chairman regrets that he is not able to 
publish the Treasurer's report in full. 

It is now 16 years since the Fund was founded'

recalls with pleasure that every contribution re-

We regret to learn that the District of Colum- 
bia Branch of the General Alumni Association, 
which a few years ago seemed sO' vigorous, has 
lapsed into a state of innocuous and apparently 
irremediable desuetude. No meeting has been 
held for several years and it seems impossible 
to aroiise interest. We recently suggested to 
some of the Washington brethren, that this was 
a good time to revive it when the university has 
just entered upon a new era and that our new 
provost could doubtless be induced to attend a 
called meeting and make an address. Drs. Harry 
Hurtt, the last President, and A. C. Valentine, 
Corresppnding Secretary, adopted this suggestion 
and sent notices of a preliminary meeting at 
the ofifice of the former. Not a single person 
besides themselves attended. Dr. Valentine 
writes: "Dr. Hurtt has exhausted every means 
to arouse interest but to no avail. I regret very 
much to make such a gloomy report, but must 
state facts. However, I am in hopes of some 
day Reviving interest by means of younger blood." 
We sympathize deeply with Dr. Valentine, who 
is a true friend and loyal alumnus of the univer- 
sity. It is men like Beale and Valentine that 
form the real backbone of a university. 

Horatio Gates Jameson, a graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, class of 1813, achieved 
distinction by his experimental studies with the 
animal ligature, which were duplicated by Lord 
Lister a generation later. These studies, based 
on animal experimentation, are pronounced b}' 
Dr. Marcy, of Boston, to be "monumental."

Charles L. Snively, class of 1905, for several

B. F. Copp, class of 1895, for many years lo-

visit to the Dean, who is his classmate, during 
the early part of February. Dr. Copp is con-

Dr. W. A. Rea, Chief Demonstrator of the 
Infirmary, spent several days during the latter part 
of January in Pittsburgh, Pa., as the represent- 
ative of the Dental Department of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland at a meeting of the National 
Institute of Dental Pedagogics. 

The three local chapters of the Xi Psi Phi 
Fraternity gave their annual reception and dance 
at Lehmann's Hall, Feb. 21. Flags and emblems 
were abundant. An orchestra played and sup- 
per was served from 11 to 12. About 70 guests 
were present. The following constituted the

It is quite interesting to note the enthusiasm 
existing in the Infirmary, especially in the Se-

work and be ready for the final rollcall, and from 
what I have heard, and judging from the work, 


Baltimore and Greene Streets. 

the class of 1913 will be the largest in the his- 
tory of the Dental Dept. 

We are glad to have Dr. Davis with us again, 
after several weeks" of illness, and we trust he 
will be able to be with us at every lecture. 

Dr. Robert Ellington, a member of the class 
of 1912, was a welcome visitor on the campus 
last week. "Bob" is located in Salisbury, N. C, 
and is meetingf with big success. 

It gives me pleasure to state that Mr. Fitz-. 
gerald, a member of the Senior class, is improv- 
ing very rapidly from the attack of pneumonia. 
Hurry up and get well, "Fitz," for we need you 
back with us. 

In writing this report, I am compelled to make 
mention of the good work going on in our dept , 
namely that of Dr. Patterson in plate work. He 
has so handled the situation that he succeeds in 
having" every Senior make a die and counter- 
die for his plate. The all-round work that has 
been done by Dr. Patterson is to be commended, 
and we join hands with him in establishing a 
greater dental dept. of U. of M. 

Another thought that impressed me in regard 
to building up our dept. was expressed in one 
of Dr. Hopkinson's lectures, when he said he 
hoped that the Senior class would organize 
Alumni Associations and contribute annually to 
the permanent LTniversity Fund, for the school 
which lives and prospers must have an endow- 
ment. Let us, as Seniors, get together and con- 
sider this. 

The Junior class held its annual banquet Feb. 
19 in the Y. M. C. A. Dining Hall. Prof. Heat- 
wole was toastmaster and speeches were made 
by niimbers of the Faculty and class. A Dental 
Dormitory was generally advocated.

Dr. Plitt is quizzing the juniors on Materia 
Medica. Dr. Kelly has started a class on prac- 
tical chemistry for the medical students. The 
senior histology began Friday morning, February 
7, under Dr. Base. 

The members of the class book committee are 
as busy as bees working on grinds, rhymes, etc. 
This year's book promises to be the best yet. 

The prescription work in the pharmacy lab- 
oratory is a great pleasure as well as benefit to 



all the seniors and it recalls cheerfully the shades 
of former package wrapping days of the junior 
class. Dr. Hynson lectures on many and varied 
prescriptions, after which the students proceed 
to the labdratory and' work on the most impor- 

In the examination on "Commercial Phar- 
macy" Professor Hynson laid great stress on this 
question in bookkeeping: "On Jan. 1 A. B.Camp- 
bell, Jr., pharmacist at Camden, S. C, was in- 
debted to H. O. Sale and Co., Balto., to the 
amount of $1750.00. He borrowed $1000.00 on 
his note, at twelve months, from his father and 
paid this to H. O. Sale & Co. on accoimt by 
cheeky. He returned for credit 4 doz. Hoff's Malt 
at $3.00, 1 doz. fruit juices for soda water 
syrups at $7.50 pet doz. and 500 cigars at $35.00 
per M7" Write to H. O. Sale & Co. for Camp- 
bell, who promises to pay them the balance by 
hdnoring a 3-day sight draft. Make all neces- 
sary entries on Campbell, Jr.'s, books and draw 
required papers. Omit the journal entries." 

It may interest the readers of this department 
to see Professor Caspari's examination of the 
senior class, in Pharmacy, held on Jan. 31. It 
was as' follows : 

"I: How is Fluid extract of Conium made; 
what is the strength of the finished product and 
h6wis this determined? 

.,"2. What is the official title of the so-called 
Tasteless Fluid extract of Cascara ; what is its 
composition and how is it made? 

"3. How are the fluid extracts of Licorice, 
S'enega and Squill made? 

"4. What are the U. S. P. requirements for

tells about the superstitions and habits of the 
poor Egyptian mothers and how they apply 
these habits on their children. For instance, 
a mother will never wash her child with water 
whose father was a syphilitic, until a certain 
age, when the child could recognize the water 
by himself. Believing that the child will ac-

In the Dental Intelligencer for September, 
1848, is a sketch of Robert ]Voojfindale, who is 
pronounced the first regular H'^tital practitioner 
in this country. The facts are taken from a lec- 
ture on the history of the dental profession in the 
United States, delivered by Dr. C. O. Cone be- 
fore the class of the Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery. He was the eldest son of his parents, 
and was born in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, in 
the year 1742. His youth was passed at Shef- 
field, where be received a good education. At 
the age of 20 he went to London and entered the 
shop of White and Gipps, apothecaries, where he 
remained three years, obtaining a practical knowl- 
edge of the drug business. While thus engaged 
he often came in contact with Mr. Thomas Bird- 
more, a well-educated gentlem?n, who held the 
honorable position of dentist to the King. This 
gentleman was at this time preparing a treatise 
on dentistry, which was published in 1770, a 
work of considerable merit. 

Such association led to the adoption of the 
dental profession by Wooffindale, who became a 
pupil of Birdmore in 1765. Before entering 
upon his service, he was rec|uired to execute a 
bond for £500 sterling, not to practice his pro- 
fession in London or within fifty miles of it 
during the life of his preceptor. His student 
life lasted not Cjuite twelve months. 

In the summer of 1766 he left London and 
went to Sheffield, where he disposed of some real 
estate which he had inherited through the death 
of his father, and on the 14th of September 
following he sailed from Falmouth for New 
York in search of a location for the practice of 
his profession. He arrived in New York on Oc- 
tober 30 and remained there about five months. 

He then spent four months in Philadelphia. His 
success so far had not been g- eat, although he 
made a favorable impression on a few who had 
employed him. On his return to New York, 
however, he had an opportunity to display his 
skill, being employed to construct a double set of 
artificial teeth from the ivory of the hippopota- 
mus. His work was in the highest degree satis- 
factory and was considered a wonderful produc- 
tion of genius. 

Plis success led to his marriage with the niece 
and adopted daughter of his patient, which took 
place on September 17,. 1767. 

Mr. Wooffindale was the first dentist in the 
cities of New York and Philadelphia and the 
only one in America with one exception, Mr. , 
Greenwood, who was wholly unknown outside of 
Boston, where he resided. Nevertheless, owing 
to the sparseness of the population, the novelty 
of the calling and the limited demand for his ser- 
vices, he determined to return to England. Ac- 
cordingly, on March 25, 1768, he embarked for 
Bristol, accompanied by his young wife. 

He again took up his residence at Sheffield, 
opening an apothecary shop and practicing den- 
tistry when patients applied for his services. In 
1775, having disposed of his property in Shef- 
field, he removed with his family, consisting of 
his wife and five children, to Liverpool, and de- 
voted his attention exclusively to his profession 
of dentist. 

He resided at Liverpool for fourteen years, 
making occasional professional ^'isits to York 
and Manchester. During this ppr'od he wrote a 
work entitled "Practical Observations on the Hu- 
man Teeth," which was published in London in 
1783, and which was superior to anything of the 
kind in the English language to that date', except 
Birdmore's Treatise. He also carved a double set 



of teeth, which, with a tooth extracted by him 
from the mouth of George IV, are preserved in 
the college museum. 

Li 1789, Mr. Birdmore died, ivhich absolved 
him from his bond, and he visited London. He 
found such encouragement there and such in- 
ducements offered by the former patrons of Mr. 
Birdmore, that he determined to locate in the 
metropolis. Accordingly he rent'^d a fashionable 
house in Dover street, Piccadilly, near St. James 
street and the King's Palace, and removed his 
family thither. 

His professional success in London was un- 
paralleled. He enjoyed the favor and patronage 
of the most fashionable circles and had tendered 
him through Lord Southampton the post of den- 
tist to the Prince of Wales, which honor he de- 

Twenty-five years had now passed since he 
had left America with his young bride and she 
longed to return to the scenes of her early life. 
He determined to gratify her, and on the 25th 
day of July, 1793, he placed her and her eight 
children on board the ship "Factor" bound for 
New York. They reached their destination dur- 
ing the following September and shortly after 
removed to a farm about fourteen miles from 
New York, near the town of Jamaica, Long 
Island, which had been rented by the oldest son, 

Mr. Wooffingdale remained in London about 
a year after the departure of his family, engaged 
in closing his business there preparatory to join- 
ing them in America, which he did in 1795. Soon 
after arrival, he opened an office in New York 
City and commenced practice. After two years 
he resigned his patients to the care of his oldest 
son and retired to his farm, where he died on the 
3d of October, 1828, in his 86th year. 

Says the writer from whom we quote : "He 
was amiable in character with an energetic mind 
and ingenious tact, which often lent him valu- 
able aid in the constructive department of his 
profession, but it does not appear that he made 

.Surgical iiiul Hosiiitnl (Supplies. Sick Room Suiiplies.

any marked improvement or discovery in any 
department of it. His published work evinced 
anatomical knowledge and that his practice was 
guided by physiological deductions. His high, 
honorable tone and professional liberality will be 
as well shown, together with the fact that the 
profession at that time at least in England, was 
principally confined to mechanical qualities de- 
pendent on secret knowledge and empirical prac- 
tices, by the following sentence taken from the 
preface of his work : T am aware that, by mak- 
ing public the various circumstances relating to 
the teeth and the operations to be performed on 
them, and exposing some of the impositions and 
deceptions too often used, I shall draw upon my- 
self the malevolence of ignorant pretenders to the 
dentist's art. To these I have nothing to say. 
Men of that profession of liberal minds will not 
want an apology for exposing the various means 
used for imposture in the profession, as it ap- 
pears the most likely method of fixing it on a 
more solid and liberal foundation than has yet 
been done.' " 

It may safely be affirmed that Mr, Wooffindale 
was one of the best practical dentists, if not the 
best, of his day, and he was so esteemed by those 
of his contemporaries who were best qualified to 
judge of his merits.

August i8th, 1830, to his father. He has just 
returned from a four-weeks trip by stage and 
canal through New York. "I left here on the 
15th ulto with about $115 in my pocket and with- 
out company. The weather was excessively 
warm. My first step was to purchase at the Bar 
of the Boat a little book, which I found exceed- 
ingly useful afterwards, entitled 'Guide to the 
Traveler through the Southern, Middle and East- 
ern States and Canada.' This book points out 
everything worthy of note on almost any route 
you can take, gives an accurate description of it 
and its history, thereby placing the solitary trav- 
eler who is for the first time on the road on an 
equality with the old resident. 

OLD Maryland. 


"I found the passage up the Hudson dehght- 
ful — the shores studded with handsome and 
flourishing towns and the scenery the finest I had 
ever seen. On the boat were Secretary Van Bu- 
ren and his two sons. I left the boat at the vil- 
lage of Catskill, about forty miles from here and 
proceeded at once in a stage which I found wait- 
ing to the celebrated Catskill Mountain House, 
or as it is frec^uently called, The Pine Orchard, 
where I spent the night. It is distant from the 
village about twelve miles over a very rough road 
up the mountain. The attractions of this place 
are the splendid view, extending in several direc- 
tions and comprising cities, towns, villages, lakes 
and rivers, and a waterfall of about 270 feet, 
called the Canterskill Falls. 

"On a little platform or lawn nearly at the top 
of an elevated peak of the mountains stands a 
very elegant and most delightful public house. 
The solitude and dreariness of the surroundings 
renders this habitation very striking to a stran- 
ger. From here one may look upon the clouds, 
lightning and rain far below, while all above and 
around is calm. 

"I reached the house late at night and visited 
the Falls the next morning after breakfast. They 
are strikingly beautiful. After dinner I took a 
carriage for the village, where I arrived in time 
for the steamboat North America, which con- 
veyed me to Albany to supper. On the way I 
met a man no years old, who related his expe- 
rience in the old French War. 

"The next day being Sunday, I embraced the 
opportunity of being present at a meeting of 
those singular people, the Shakers, who have a 
,settlement of about forty men and women called 
Niskayuna, eight miles from Albany. I pro- 
cured a horse and rode out after breakfast. It 
was very amusing. I did not comprehend a 
word they said, and such singing and dancing — 
you can have no idea of it until you see it. Most 
of them were old and looked fanatical. How- 
ever, no doubt they mean well. 

"Returning to Albany to dinner, I set out in the 
cool of the evening for the widely celebrated 


Manufacturers of 


Saratoga and reached there late at night. The 
distance is about 36 miles and part of the road 
is bad. I had the pleasure of traveling over the 
splendid macadamized road between Albany and 
Troy, which cost about $16,000 per mile. I 
found Saratoga crowded, hot, dusty and dis- 
agreeable and determined to get away as soon as 
possible. The following day I had the pleasure 
to meet an old friend and fellow-cadet, who grad- 
uated last June — Lieutenant Prentiss, who in- 
formed me that he was traveling with his 
mother and that they would leave Saratoga that 
day on the western route, for the falls, etc. Learn- 
ing that I was going in the same direction, he 
invited me to travel in their company, an invita- 
tion which I accepted with much pleasure. He 
introduced me to his mother, whom I found a 
most sensible, intelligent and agreeable lady. We 
set out for Schenectady the same evening, where 
we arrived just in time for the canal-boat. We 
proceeded on the great canal as far' as Utica, 
where we arrived the following evening, having 
passed over locks and aqueducts and many 
other — to me — wonderful things. Utica is quite 
a handsome town, with some fine buildings and 
full of bustle and business. 

"On the day after our arrival we set out very 
early in the morning for Trenton Falls, distant 
about 16 miles, which we reached to breakfast. 
We spent the day viewing the Falls, returning to 
Utica in the evening. I cannot pretend to de- 
scribe the former or my sensations in seeing 
them. Those on the Catskill dwindled to insig- 
nificance in comparison, for though their height 
was much greater, the body of water was much 
less. For wildness and grandeur the scenery of 
Trenton Falls far exceeds anything I have seen 
elsewhere on my journey, with the single excep- 
tion of Niagara Falls. The fall is over what is 
called West Canada Creek. The water-level 
makes a descent of 387 feet in five miles by a 
series of falls and chutes, none of which exceed 
40 feet. At the Falls there was a very good 
hotel and we met several parties like ourselves 
traveling for health and curiosity. A nielan- 
;:holy event occurred here a few years ago : a 
Miss Suydam, of New York, who was on a visit 
here with her father, brother and lover, to whom 
she was to be married in a short time, fell in the 
water and was drowned. 



"Li Utica we found that greatest of comforts 
for dusty travelers — a delightful bath. 

"Next morning we left Utica at 4 A. M., and 
after an excessively fatiguing and disagreeable 
stage ride of 75 miles, arrived at Auburn at 11 
P. M." The letter concludes with an expression 
of admiration of the splendid stone aqueduct 
bridge over the Mohawk, at Little Falls, and a 
promise to continue the description of his trip in 
his next letter. He mentions also the arrival of 
"Henry," who, as I suppose, was his cousin, the 
late Major Henry S. Turner, U. S. A., of St. 

Sept. 13, 1830, to his father: "I ha\e desired 
very much indeed for some time past a sufficient 
leisure to write to you and my other correspond- 
ents, to many of whom I have been some time 
indebted, but our time has been so much em- 
ployed since coming into Barracks, as to have 
prevented it. I seize this morning, before break- 
fast, a little time — I cannot call it leisure, because 
it is the time which I am in the habit of devoting 
to the review of my lesson — to write you rather 
a note than a letter. I have been particularly 
anxious to write to you, my dearest Papa, be- 
cause I know that your extreme solicitude for 
my welfare might render you uneasy if I delayed 
it longer. I wished, moreover, to congratulate 
you on the fine crop which I have been told you 
have made this year, and on the good health 
which you ha\e enjoyed since your return from 
the Springs. 

"With my best love to Mamma" (this was his 
stepmother) "tell her that Mr. Chevalier was 
here a few days ago (on the gth inst.) in much 
better health than he had enjoyed for some time. 
As the weather was so wet during his stay as to 
prevent our parading, he talked of returning 
again in the course of a few days. He desired 
me to remember him very particularly to the 
family at Wheatland when I wrote. 

"Henry is well and sends his love to you.

"I must defer a continuation of the descrip- 
tion of my route to the west and north for the 
present, both from a want of time and because 
I think that you would prefer an account of the 
nature of our studies. They are divided between 
the civil and the military. We have commenced 
a course of belles lettres which will be continued 
throughout the year, comprising Murray's large 
Grammar, Blair, Paley and Kent's Commen- 
taries. We are also studying the Science of 
Fortification, which will be succeeded by that of 
Civil Engineering after January. AVe are engaged 
with a course of Artillery Tactics, upon finishing 
\\'hich we will take up Lifantry Tactics; We will 
also study Mineralogy during the course of the 
year, but the ill health of our Professor has pre- 
\ented our commencing it yet. Our course of En- 
gineering will comprise a great deal of right line 
drawing throughout the year, of Forts, etc., before 
January and of the orders of Architecture, etc., 
afterwards. (3ur course is long this year and 
will require almost all our time. But, though 
there is a great deal to be learned from it, it 
does not require that intense application which 
must be given to the knots of Mathematics and 
Natural Philosophy. 

"Our Professor of Engineering, Mr. Mahan, 
is from Virginia. He graduated first in his class 
and is in the Corps of Engineers. For the last 
four years he has been a student at the School 
of Metz, France, where I understand he grad- 
uated with considerable distinction. He has just 
returned to this country and I consider our class 
as peculiarly fortunate in possessing the services 
of so able and withall so agreeable an instructor. 
Give my best love to the family and believe me 
my dearest father, most truly your aiTectionate 
son. Next year I shall be with you again. P. S. 
Poor but glorious France. Pier troubles, I hope, 
have ended." 

Dec. 8 1830, to his sister Christine, who asks 
his advice about her reading. 

While regretting his inability to give useful 
advice from his own experience, he suggests 
that she "read seriously and attentively the Bible. 
A portion read each day carefully and in a proper 
spirit will furnish you with a most devoted sub- 
ject of medidation, the most important upon 
which a human being can reflect, will enlighten 
you on the history of a very interesting period — 



the first ages of the world, will present you with 
by far the best code of morals which has ever 
been displayed to the human family, will lead 
you to reflect on the everyday practical duties 
of life and will teach you the inducements to 
act rightly. According to the finest writers in 
the English language — Burke, Blair and others — 
it will moreover exhibit to you the finest speci- 
mens of the sublime, the elegant and the tender 
in composition. The poetry of the Psalms, 
Isaiah and other parts of the Bible is unsurpassed 
in our language. But why need I say more? 
You, my dear Sister, as well as 1, know it to be 
a duty. I will merely add further, that the 
reading of the Scriptures will naturally lead you 
to the perusal of other books connected with the 
subject — for explanation, etc. — both interesting 
and useful. I should think it advisable to con- 
verse with those more advanced than yourself 
in the study of them on those parts which you 
find it difficult to comprehend." 

"Ne.xt, avoid novels — particularly such as are 
of a light and trifling nature. They dissipate the 
mind and give a distaste for what is substantial 
and of more importance. One of Scott's migh.t 
probably be read occasionally as a relaxation. 
Read history and literary works, such as The 
Spectator, The Rambler, etc. You would find 
some of Shakespeare's plays are both instructive 
and pleasing. Read good poetry — you would like 
Milton. I believe there are several very excel- 
lent works in the Library at Wheatland — both 
historical and poetical. You will find some vol- 
umes of letters there too, which would please 
you ; Lyttleton's letters are elegantly written. 

"There are few stibjects of more importance, 
my dear Chrissy, at our age, than the improve- 
ment of the mind. We shall never regret it, but 
it will, on the contrary, prove an inexhaustible 
source of pleasure. 

"As you know, I am coming home in all prob- 
ability next year and you must make interest for 
me with some of those girls there and my old 
acquaintances. Miss Philippa is not at Wheat- 
land just now, I believe. Where is Mary? ITow

The battalion is now reorganized upon a basis 
of two companies, instead of three as hitherto. 
Capt. Fell of Co. "A," and Capt. Fitzgerald of 
Co. "B," retain their commands. Capt. Gering, 
formerly of Co. "C," is transferred to the staft' 
with the rank of 1st Lieut. Battalion Adjutant. 
It is thought that the new arrangement will add 
to the appearance and increase the efficiency of 
the battalion. 

On Monday, March 17th, the last of the series 
of University Extension lectures was delivered 
by Mr. Amos W. Woodcock, S. J. C. '04, sec- 
retary to U. S. Senator Jackson. Mr. Wood- 
cock discussed the Permanent Court of Arbitra- 
tion at the Hague, and the actual arbitration 
accomplished there. He spoke without notes 
and displayed a remarkable mastery of the de- 
tails of his intricate subject. The course of lec- 
tures proved a decided success and has afforded 
general satisfaction. The other lecturers were 
Mr. Hamilton Holt, Managing Editor of The 
Independent, New York City ; Dr. Edwin D. 
Mead, Director of the World Peace Foundation, 
Boston, Mass. ; Major Carl Reichman of the 
General Staft", U. S. A., and Dr. Hamlin, Pro- 
fessor of Architecture, Columbia University. 

St. John's closed the past basket-ball season 
with an enviable record. Besides winning the 
undisputed championship of Maryland, her quin- 
tet earned a very high position in the South- 
.\tlantic Championship. The Orange and Bla,-k 
drew the long end in ten of the twelve contests, 
being defeated only by the Navy and Catholic 
University — and then only after stift' fights on 
unfamiliar courts. St. John's scored a total of 
495 points during the season, while the oppo- 
nents totaled 238. Frank H. Thompson has been 
elected captain for next year. Thompson is a 
native of Annapolis, Md. He played right guard' 



on the basket-ball team for the past season. 
Besides this, he has proven a game plucky ath- 
lete in other lines, having held down center field 
in base-ball last year, and having won his S. ) C. 
and star in football. 

Capt. Noble is rounding out his base-ball ma- 
terial satisfactorily. All the members of last 
season's nine are out again this year, except 
Heightman and Tolson, who will be greatly 
missed on the pitching staff. 

Alumni Notes : — Rev. Dr. Forest J. Pretty- 
man, a member of the class of 1882, has been 
chosen chaplain of the United States Senate for 
the coming 63rd Congress. — The class of 1910 
is laying plans for a class reunion. Upon the 
committee on arrangements are H. C. Ruhl, 
Clark F. Brown, Roscoe E. Grove, Peter Zouck, 
and H. E. Wilson. — William C. Devecmon, a 
graduate of St. John's College, is being supported 
by the Maryland delegation in Congress for ap- 
pointment as Judge of the Fourth United States 
Judicial Circuit. C. M. 



Dr. F. F. Drew. Secretary of the Maryland 
State Board of Dental Examiners, called on 
Dean Heatwole early in the month of March and 
requested the use of our college buildings and 
equipment for the purpose of examining the 
spring applicants for licenses to practice dentistry 
in Maryland. Permission to use our plant was 
granted and the dates set for the examinations 
are May 29 and 30. ^ 

Through application forms received from the 
State of North Carolina on the request of mem- 
bers of the senior class, we learn that the Board 
for that state will meet on May 26, 27, and 28. 

Drs. W. C. Shirley, 1904, and W. B. Fahrney, 
1898, both members of the famous Stonewall 
Band of Staunton, Va., which musical organiza- 
tion headed the military schools from the Old 
Dominion in the line of march at the inaugura- 
tion of President Woodrow Wilson, on March 



S. W. Cor. Eutaw and Saratoga Sts., Baltimore, Md. 

4. after breaking ranks, made a short visit to 
Baltimore and their alma mater. Dr. J. E. Mo- 
lony, of South Carolina, uncle of Mike Groves, 
Junior, also utilized the inauguration occasion 
to pay us a visit. Dr. Molony graduated with the 
class of 1889, and has since been in active prac- 
tice in his native state. 

Other graduates who called to see us since 
the last issue are the following : 

Dr. S. M. Byers, 1894; Dr. H. A. Folsom, 
1911; Dr. Rhodes Burrows, 1911; Dr. J. H. 
Ilamer, Jr., 1903, Dr. Bates Etchison, 1905. 

Through a clipping from the New Britain 
(Conn.) Daily we are advised of the death of 
Dr. Frederick E. Monks, 1908. Dr. Monks was 
a brother of Dr. Georgianna Monks, who grad- 
uated in 1909 with first honors. They were for 
several years associated together in practice in 
New Britain. The brother, on account of ill 
health, was oblicred to .-ibandon practice about 
one year ago. His death, which took place on 
March 6, was due to diabetes. 

Charles L. Meade, D. D., pastor of the First 
Methodist Episcopal Church, addressed the stu- 
dent body of the Dental Department, on March 
12, his topic being "Honest Purpose." By his 
direct and masterl}' presentation of the subject, 
Dr. Meade made a strong impression on the 
members of the several classes and all rejoice 
in the privilege had of listening to this popular 
speaker. Increasing interest is being manifested 
in these monthly gatherings, as is being made 
evident through expressions of approval on the 
part of students and the earnest attention ac- 
corded at such times. 

At the instigation of Rev. K. G. Murray, pas- 
tor of Fayette Street Methodist Church, who 
made all the necessary arrangements and per- 
sonally conducted the affair, students of the Den- 
tal and other Departments of the University 
made a pilgrimage to the ancient city of Annapo- 
lis on Saturday afternoon, March 15. Special 
cars were provided by the W. B. & A. Railway 

The citizens of Annapolis were apprised of 
our arrival through proclamation of the Uni- 
•\-ersity yell, which was given with spirit and 
hearty unison. We were met at the station and 
escorted to the Executive Mansion by Mr. De 
Vries, the Governor's private secretary. The 



freedom of -the mansion was extended b)' the 
Governor and the boys made good use of the 
opportunity to explore the same from cellar to 
garret, after which an elaborate luncheon was 
served by Mrs. Goldsborough, wife of the Gov- 
ernor. After thanking the host and hostess and 
before leaving the mansion grovuxls, the college 
yell was again given, supplemented this time 
with "Long live the Governor." The State 
House, Naval Academy and .St. John's College 
were then visited in turn. At the Academy, 
Captain Gibbons detailed Lieutenant Castleman 
and six midshipmen to act as an escort through 
the grounds and buildings. 

The folowing sections were represented in the 
party : — Cuba, the Philippines, Pennsylvania, 
Maine, Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusett.s, 
West Virginia, Connecticut and South Carolina. 
Dr. Murray, through his untiring energy in plan- 
ning and carrying out the scheme and his s]iecial 
good cjualities of comradeship, has endeared him- 
self anew to the students of the University. 
Much credit is due him and words fail to ex- 
press our appreciation of his thoughtfulness and 
generotis attention. 

A fine life-size photograph of the late Pro- 
fessor James PL Harris, the gift of his daugh- 
ter — Mrs. John B. Thomas, has been hung in 
Harris Hall. It is by llgenfritz, of 319 North 
Charles St. and is not only a great work of 
art but a speaking reproduction of this genial 
gentleman and unexcelled dental operator. His 
many friends and pupils are cordialh' in\ited to 
visit the hall and again look upon the features 
of one whom all so loved and revered, here so 
vividly brought back to their gaze. 

Among those who attended the inauguration 
in Washington were Dr. Valentine and Messrs. 
O'Brien, Summerfield and Mitchell. ( The Asso- 
ciate Editor of this Department acknowledges 
his great indebtedness to Dean Heatwole for the 
preparation of these notes). W. E. M. 


Professor William Power, who filled Prof. 
Elisha Bartlett's chair of practice in the Uni- 
versity, B. being unavoidably absent in Europe 
for health and study, delivered his introductory 
lecture in October, 1845. There is a copy of 

this in a volume of "Introductory Addresses," 
presented by Professor Frank Donaldson, in the 
Johns Hopkins Hospital Library. "I feel a pride," 
he says, "to be selected to teach in these halls 
where thirteen winters past I sat * * for the 
first time, a young student, my heart beating with 
bright hopes and filled with warm enthusiasm 
while listening to the voice of the venerable Pot- 
ter." Of Bartlett's "Philosophy of Medical Sci- 
ence," published about a year before, he said it 
was "decidedly the most remarkable original 
work that has emanated from the medical pro- 
fession of this country and the most satisfactory 
exposition and clean-cut interpretation of the in- 
ducti\e philosophy that we have met with any- 

/^ Professor Davidge extirpated the parotid gland 
~ in Jan. or Feb., 1823, this being the first time 
of its performance, three years earlier than Mc- 
Clellan's, of Jefferson Medical College. The 
operation is described in D.'s journal, July, 1823, 
with a certificate to the facts from Frederick E. 
Bectin, a pupil in D.'s office and alumnus of the 
University of Maryland. 

John Revere was of LIuguenot descent, son of 
Colonel Paul Revere. He visited Edinburgh and 
Paris. Took M. D. from the former in i8ii. 
.Settled in Baltimore in 1816, devoting himself 
to chemical experiments. "One of best and most 
learned professors of medicine in the United 
States. Incomplete work of 400 pages on medi- 
cine was published by him, but the rest of it 
could not be found after his death." — Trans. Am.

Niles' Register, a Baltimore weekly, begun in 
181 1, refers to the inconveniences of the college 
of medicine during the session of 1811-12. "The 
conspicuous merit of our graduates last spring," 
i. e., the spring of 181 1, shows that there were 
graduates before May, 1812, and thus confirms 
Dr. Potter's statement to that efi^ect (see Cor- 
dell's Hist. Sketch. 1891).

As our Associate Editor is too modest to note 
it himself we may announce that at a preliminary 
contest held March 14 in McDowell Hall, St. 
John's College, to decide upon a representative 
from the college to enter the contest at Baltimore 
early in April for the prize for the best oration 
upon the subject "Peace" or ''The General De- 
sirability of Peace," Cadet Calvert Magruder 
won. .. The other contestants were Cadets Edgar- 

Fell, of the senior class, and O. M. Moore, 
sophomore class. The judges were Admiral 
Todd, U. S. N., and Professors Morris and 
Gladden, of St. John's College. 


We regret to see that Rei'. Dr. Thomas Grier 
Koontz, the popular pastor of Westminster 
("Poe Memorial") Church is to leave Balti- 
more to become connected with a Presbyterian 
Church in Wheeling, W. Va. He has announced 
that he will leave on April 6th. Dr. Koontz has 
been in charge of AVestminster for eight years, 
and during that time has endeared himself to all 
University of Maryland people by his cordial 
interest and participation in our affairs. He has 
taken part in all Academic Day Ceremonies, 
which have always been held at Westminster 
Church and really might almost be styled the 
"University Chaplain." The honorary degree of 
Doctor of Divinity was conferred upon him at 
the last annual commencement. Dr. Koontz will 
carry with him the best wishes of us all for a 
successful and prosperous career in the new field 
of labor to which he has been called. 

The following recommendation of the Execu- 
tive Council was adopted by the Association of 
American Medical Colleges, at its meeting held 
at Chicago, Feb. 26, 1913: "That on and after 
Jan. I, 1914, the Association will raise its pres- 
ent entrance requirement to one year of college 
work in physics, chemistry, biology and one mod- 
ern language, of college grade, in consonance 
with the action taken by the House of Delegates 
of the American Medical Association at its meet- 
ing in Atlantic City, June, 1912." 

The fine new ward added to University Hos- 
pital by the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road is 
completed and in operation under Dr. Page Ed- 
munds. We had hoped to publish in this issue 
a description of it written by Dr. Edmunds, but 
owing to his absence from the city, this will have 
to be deferred until our next issue. 

Dean R. Dorsey Coale tells us that the merger 
of the Schools also included the dental depart- 
ment connected with the Baltimore Medical Col- 
lege. It was decided that it should be taken in 
on June I, 1914, or sooner if circumstances called 



for it. j\s the circumstances render it imperative 
that there should be no delay, it will be consum- 
mated, as in the case of the college, at the close 
of the session. There are two full professors in 
the Faculty of the School, Drs. J. W. Smith, 
Dean and Professor of Dental Prosthesis, Crown 
and Bridge Work, and E. E. Cruzen, Professor 
of Operative Dentistry, Dental Technic, Ortho- 
dontia and Oral Hygiene. The school is said to 
have been well administered and to be in pros- 
perous condition. It has 94 matriculates. 

In presenting the portrait of Dr. John Buckler, 
'ij, to the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty on 
Jan. 21, Professor Chew spoke very feelingly. 
He said that he was probably the last lingering 
survivor of those of the medical profession who 
enjoyed the benefits of Dr. Buckler's knowledge 
and counsel in consultation, although the latter 
had then already obtained the position of a patri- 
arch, leader and guide. He was a man of force, 
intellectual endowments and being always a stu- 
dent, he kept himself in the forefront of the 
science of his day. But besides this, he was a 
typical instance of the family physician, b.icause 
the qualities of his heart endeared him to his 
patients and made him their friend and coun- 
selor. ''As I look at this portrait," said Dr. 
Chew, 'T see in the ample brow the indication 
of his mental strength and activity. The ex- 
pression of the face is very grave and even stern 
to a degree and does not fully show the kindli- 
ness and graciousness which belonged to the man. 
The lack of this is unavoidable by a painter who 
could only follow one fixed expression of a pho- 
tograph and who never saw the play of feeling 
which shone from the living face." 

The agreement for union between the two 
schools, previously made by the Faculty of 
Physic of the University and the Faculty of the 
Baltimore Medical College, was ratified by the 
Board of Regents of the University at a meet- 



Your R;ink Accouut 


ing held on Mar. 19th. It takes effect at the 
close of the present session. All the details have 
not yet been settled, but the twelve members of 
the governing faculty of the College will all be 
given places in the Board of Instruction. The 
names of these gentlemen and the positions they 
will occupy are as follows : Dr. Charles G. Hill, 
Professor of Nervous and Mental Diseases ; Dr. 

A. C. Pole, Professor of Descriptive Anatomy; 
Dr. David Streett, Professor of Practice of 
Medicine ; Dr. John D. Blake, Professor of Clini- 
cal Surgery; Dr. Samuel K. Merrick, Professor 
of Diseases of Nose and Throat; Dr. J. Frank 
Crouch, Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology and 
Otology ; Dr. J. M. H. Rowland, Professor of 
Clinical Obstetrics ; Dr. Charles O'Donovan, 
Professor of Clinical Pediatrics and Clinical 
Medicine; Dr. G. Milton Linthicum, Professor 
of Proctology; Dr. Ridgely B. Warfield, Pro- 
fessor of Practice of Surgery; Dr. W. B. Perry, 
Professor of Clinical Gynecology; Dr. Tilghman 

B. Marden, Professor of Histology and Embry- 
ology. Of these, Drs. Pole, Merrick, Crouch, 
O'Donovan, Warfield and Marden are alumni of 
the University. The College has 185 matricu- 

The only property to be turned over by the 
College is the equipment of the laboratory. There 
is only one building belonging to the corporation 
since the purchase of the Hospital by the Metho- 
dists; that is the 3-story structure on the east 
side of Howard St., occupied also by the Law 
School. As this building is burdened with a 
heavy mortgage, it was decided not to purchase 
it, but it will continue the property of the Col- 
lege corporation, which will remain in existence 
as a chartered institution indefinitely for the pur- 
pose of holding it. 

A separate agreement has been made between 
the Faculty of Physic and the owners of the 
Maryland General Hospital, by which the clinical 
advantages of that institution with its 175 beds 
are secured for the University. This is regarded 
as the most important feature of the merger and 
was largely responsible for it. 

"So, in eft'ect," as remarked by the Sun, "the 
absorption of the College means simply the clos- 
ing down of that institution and the addition of 
the members of its Faculty to the teaching force 
of the University." 



{Continued from page 39) 

• Aug. 24, 1812: "The building is already in 
great forwardness." Potter has Theory and 
Practice of Medicine, Da\idge has Institutes or 
Principles of Physick, Davidge and Hall have 
jointly Obstetrics, Diseases of Women and Chil- 
dren. The course commences the ist Monday 
in November and ends the last day of February. 
This notice is signed by a committee of the Fac- 
ulty (Cocke, Davidge and Gibson). This is added 
under the above date: "Resolved, etc., That as 
an expression of the estimation in which the col- 
lege of medicine holds classical learning, a gold 
medal be given annually for the best written the- 
sis in Latin and all graduates in arts and science.? 
be exempt from the ordinary expense of gradua- 
tion. James Cocke, sec." 

1813. The university building, begun May 7. 
1812, was occupied the next session. The pro- 
fessor of chemistry is now arranging his miner- 
alogical collection. 

1816. Previously all professors except chemi- 
cal have occupied anatomical hall for lectures. 
This year they were accommodated with a new 
room deri\ed from an alteration in the library 
in the front of the building. This added greatlv 
to the comfort of the classes, as it was sufficiently 
large, easily warmed, etc. 

Dr. David Ramsay, the celebrated historian, 
author of "History of the American Revolution," 
was shot to death by an insane man in Charles- 
ton, .S. C, March i, 181 5. He was born in Cum- 
berland Co., N. J., in 1748, and was graduated 
in medicine at the Philadelphia Medical College, 
taking M. B. in 1768. He commenced practice 
at the head of Bohemia River, in Cecil Co.. Md.. 
but not meeting with the desired success, soon 
removed to Charleston. \'ol. ix.

Dear Sir: 

Sectio}! of the History of Medicine: 

I have pleasure in informing you that you 
have been elected a Corresponding (Honorary) 
Member of the Section of the History of Medi- 
cine of this Society. 

As a Corresponding (Honorar}') Member you 
are exempt from all fees and subscriptions, and 
have the privilege of attending all ordinary meet- 
ings of the Section and of contributing papers. 

I enclose the Obligation Form and shall be 
obliged if you will sign and return it io me at 
3'our early convenience. 

I also enclose a copy of the Abridged Calendar, 
which gives particulars with regard to the So- 
ciety and the Sections. 

Faithfully yours, 




The students, thru Old M.\RYL.^ND, wish to 
extend to the Faculty their very sincere thanks 
for the holiday given them March 4. They scarce 
expected to have the day off. not that the Faculty 
did not wish us to have it, but because the Col- 
lege Association had made no such provision. 
However, with no disrespect, by far the major- 
ity of the students would have taken French 
leave anyway, — the stolid-faced Republicans go- 
ing as they said to see what a Democratic Presi- 

dent looked like, for fear they'd never see an- 
other. Bwana Tumbo's adherents are plenty at 
the University, but to Bwana the world has said 
"I 'ale." tho neither Bwana Tumbo nor his cym- 
bal ringers can see it — even thru a microscope. 
Teddy, we imagine, was on the Outlook that day 
and his followers on the lookout, — but Wilson's 

men my. my Geraldine, Valhalla on a busy 

day was nothing compared to it. 

Mr. Lutz, of the Junior Class, met with a very 
unfortunate accident while crossing Lombard 
St. from the hospital, recently. Mr. Lutz fell in 
such a way that the olecranon process of his 
right ulnar bone was snapped. Dr. Spruill at- 
tended to the injury and best hopes are enter- 
tained that nothing serious will develop, as a re- 
sult of the accident. 

Dr. Gordon Wilson is confined to his home 
with an infected hand. In his absence. Dr. Lock- 
ard is lecturing to the Juniors on Medicine. 

Mr. Devine, of the Senior Class, has received 
an appointment as medical interne in St. Joseph's 
Hospital, Prov., R. I. — his interneship to com- 
mence July I and last for one year. Mr. Devine 
recently took the competitive examinations at 
the above-mentioned hospital — and to use a stu- 
dent colloquialism, "knocked their eyes out."

other well-known Northern Colleges took the 


Dear Doctor — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly in- 
vestigate New York pharmacies and certify to the 
worth of those that meet reasonaule modern require- 
ments in stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifi- 
cation. The character of ivork we have been doing for 
more than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly and 
firmly established us in your esteem and favorably 
testifies as to our abilities and methods.

This unique establishment is fully equipped for pre- 
scriptions and stocked with a large assortment of sick 
room supplies, invalid's appliances and household 
drugs and chemicals; surgical instruments and physi- 
cian's supplies are more fully stocked at Charles and 
Franklin Streets. 

We are working with you, doctor, not against you. 


Pharmacists to Physicians and their Patients. 



Mr. Norbert C. Nitsch, of the Senior Class, 
has been appointed to assist Dr. Bloodgood at 
St. Agnes' Hospital, during the coming year. 

Prof. Hemmeter was warmly welcomed by the 
students on his return to the University, after 
■ an enforced absence of some four months. Dr. 
Hemmeter is glad to get back to his "boys" and 
he may feel assured that his "boys" are mighty 
glad to have him back. To the Sophs and a 
goodly number of students of the other classes 
who came to greet him. Dr. Hemmeter, after an 
exchange of courtesies, delivered a very instruc- 
tive lecture on "The History of the Physiology 
of Digestion." 

One half of the Junior Class has finished the 
course in Clinical Lab. and, judging from the 
returns, all is well on this side of the Potomac. 
Not a man flunked and at least six of them man- 
aged to pluck down a century mark. Dr. Lock- 
ard states, that never before has he read such a 
collection of examination papers, which only goes 
to show that the Jwniors are making some noise. 

Mr. Richard W. Morton, formerly of the class 
of '14, dropped around to pay his former class- 
mates a flying visit, after witnessing the Inaugu- 
ration Ceremonies. "Dick," as he is familiarly 
known, is now located in Winston-Salem, N. C, 
and holds a very responsible position in one of 
the largest business houses there. 

Death has called away from the Sophomores 
one of their classmates, — Mr. James B. Radlow, 
of N. Y. — who died at the University Hospital 
during the past week of peritonitis, after inef-

burning the sputtering spark of life. But Death 
was the stronger, another victim it claimed, this 
time in the person of a young man whose life 
had just begun, one admired and respected by 
all. When sable-robed Death mantles under her 
shroud one of those we have learned to love, 
then it is, for the first time maybe, that the chains 
of fettered memory are unloosed — and there 
comes before our eyes the well-known face of 
him, who is no more of this world a part. From 
out of the past, in slow procession, there pass for

review the little actions of that one and perhaps 
we smile a sweet yet sad, sad smile, as the Magi- 
cian Death conjures his pictures — a smile de- 
noting pleasant associations, little somethings 
that lie hidden in our hearts and which the heart 
that knows only can understand. Maybe we 
sigh that perhaps we have caused that one need- 
less pain, that our acts of omission helped to 
roughen his already roughened way. The pessi- 
mistic world, with eyes bandaged to tears and 
heart closed to pity, holds up a deriding finger 
and from a soul enured to tender words, pro- 
claims that 'twas ever so — to praise a man when 
his ears are deaf to our belated words of sym.- 
pathy and cold in death he is no more. Yet the 
heart that is full hears not and the hearts of the 
Sophomores for they have lost a friend — a class- 
mate and highest of all that can be said, a man. 
He is gone from our view, but in remembrance, 
when memory in her sweet enchanted hour rules 
supreme, then again will he live. At times we'll 
say a prayer, that he who with life yet to live, 
found death in life, may be better now; that on 
that other unknown, mystic shore to which we 
all must go, he may have found life in death. 

Dr. John C. Hemmeter has extended to Dr. 
Friedman, who recently startled the world by his 
claim of having discovered a cure for Tubercu- 
losis and who is at the present time in New 
York demonstrating his purported cure — an invi- 
tation to visit the University, for the purpose of 
making experiments. Whether or not Dr. Fried- 
man will accept is a matter of conjecture, but we 
sincerely hope that he will, that we may profit 
thereby. The medical profession all over the 
world is putting every obstacle in the way of this 
learned man — they call him mercenary, non- 
ethical and a host of other unbecoming epithets. 
To be great is to be misunderstood by those who, 
thru jealousy, cynicism or what not, do not want 
to understand. Pythagoras, Socrates, Coperni- 
cus, Galileo. Newton, Darwin and others of the 
truly great, had to face Golgotha and now it's 
Dr. Friedman's turn. If his cure is true, time 
will tell but in the meantime, let us aid him if 
we can. 

Dr. B. Merril Hopkinson delivered a very 
pleasing and instructive lecture in the Hospital 
Amphitheatre, Monday, March 11, at i P. M.. 
before the students of all departments. A nuni- 



ber of visiting physicians, besides many of the 
regular hospital staff, were present. The subject 
of Dr. Hopkinson's lecture was "Diseases of the 
Mouth and Digestive Disturbances." 

Mr. Stapleton, of the Junior Class, employs 
himself during the summer months, by drawing 
cartoons for one of the New Jersey Daily Papers. 
He possesses great skill in this line of work and 
his drawings are always original and to the point. 
Mr. Stapleton has contributed two cartoons for 
the Terra Marine. 

Messrs. Tullidge, Murphy and McDaniel, of 
the Senior Class, have taken the Civil Service 
Examinations for the Indian Service and will be 
eligible for appointments at the end of the col- 
lege year. Messrs. Bean, Gould and Pratt, of 
the same class, having passed successful competi- 
tive examinations at Bayview Hospital, held early 
in February, were offered appointments on the 
Surgical, Tubercular and Neurological Depart- 
ments of that Hospital. 

Messrs. Newcomer, Pratt and Hays, Senior 
Class, recently took the examinations for ap- 
pointments at the Union Protestant Infirmary. 

The final examinations for the Seniors com- 
mence the week of April i. 

The theatre party and benefit held by the Ath- 
letic Alumni Association of the University, on 
March 26, at the Academy, was well attended by 
both students and members of the Faculty, their 
wives and friends. The offering was Christie 
McDonald, star of "The Spring Maid," and a 
number of other light operas, in Victor Herbert's 
latest offering, "Sweethearts." 

\\'e have heard in figurative language of things 
dying in their birth and that expression quite 
adequately fits the present state of atheltics at 
the University. Last year we heard of won- 
drous things to be done for athletics by the Fac- 
ulty and we oped our weary eyes, inflated our 
lungs and hurrahed. But now — castle walls have 
fallen, hope lies buried, and athletics like a weep-

ing willow has bowed itself to earth, cried a 
mournful, heartful sigh and died — a martyr and 
perhaps at the present writing it is mourning on 
its passage across the Styx, while optimistic 
Charon, thinking of the coming examinations by 
Euscalapius on the other side of the stream, 
says — "Go light with the tears kiddo — do you 
want to have a flood"? 

But where's the blame — why the demise of 
poor Athletics ? Students perhaps have a share 
in it, yet the students have always held some mis- 
givings relative to the sincerity of the Faculty's 
stand of a year ago. They may be wrong, yet 
you will have to explain to them why it is that 
some of the Professors seem so opposed to those 
men who take an active part in the few games 
that are played — at least such an impression is 
firmly fixed in their minds and if they do partici- 
pate in any of the games they liken it to a suicide 
on their part since they honestly believe that, by 
doing such, the Professors opposed to athletics 
will flunk them. The view may be extreme but 
it exists just the same. 

This year we are to have no baseball team — • 
at least none authorized to bear the University's 
name. In the school there is plenty of good 
material — men who have played on some of the 
biggest college nines in the country, but athletics 
are discountenanced and these men as far as 
baseball is concerned might as well be in Kalama- 
zoo. To our minds, nothing is to be gained but 
much lost by the failure of the Faculty to give 
the teams representing the University the ade- 
quate support financially and otherwise that they 
should have. What makes students pack Flar- 
vard, Yale or any of the other well-known Uni- 
versities ? Surely education to a great extent, 
but it is mainly the achievements of their foot- 
ball or baseball team and to whichever college 
that makes the best showing the students flock. 
They feel proud in going to such a school, they 
advertise it unconsciously and the school is 

The adjunct Faculty has striven hard to put 
athletics on a firm footing — until they are sick 
of the whole aff'air. They claim that the students 
have not acted as they should, either by helping 
out the association by buying tickets or by at- 
tendance at the few games that were played. Not 
only that, but the men representing the teams 



failed to practice and as is the way of the world, 
kept the suits which should have been returned. 
I'he students are to blame — we acknowledge it, 
but why not give us an association that is an 
association so that interest must be taken ? You'll 
never get men to buy tickets for an association 
unless you give them something in return and 
the men who separated themselves from the dol- 
lodocci in the past by buying association tickets 
were philanthropists more or less, for in return 
they were given the golden opportunity of seeing 
one or two games played in Baltimore. 

Why athletics are not encouraged and sup- 
ported more is probably known only to the Fac- 
ulty. They may think like the vitriolic Hubbard, 
of East Aurora — "that" football (and baseball) 
occupies the same relation to education that a 
bullfight does to farming." Yet we'll let the jibe 
slip by and hurl invectives from the Essay on 
Silence. Athletics to education is an integral 
part — one alone makes a physical man, the other 
alone a person suffering from ankylosis of the 
cerebrum as far as seeing the bright side of life 
is concerned. Give the former a hypo of educa- 
tion and the latter a 606 injection of athletics and 
you have a man — a healthy man in mind and 
body. And what are we to have — the hypo or 
the injection? Quick Doc — the injection for 
mine. And while I'm waiting for it, I'm going 
out to buy some flowers and place them with a 
tear on poor athletics' grave, who died at the 
University of Maryland during the past year of 
cruel neglect — and on whose retina, — as is fixed 
on the retina of every dying person that image 
which it last sees — is fixed the picture of those 
who killed it in cold blood — the students and the

A reception was tendered to our new Provost 
at the Hotel Rennert, Baltimore, on the evening 
of March 27th by the General Alumni Associa- 
tion. The occasion was one of warm self-con- 
gratulation by the Alumni and of the most cor- 
dial greetings to the new head of the University. 
The keynote was one of jubilation over the new 
era inaugurated in the University and of bright 
anticipations of blessings to come as the result 
of it. 

The Faculty of the Baltimore Medical College 
were present by invitation and were warmly wel- 
comed. By formal vote the graduates of the 
College were recognized as alumni of the Uni- 
versity arid declared eligible fo' membership in 
the Association. 

Mr. James W. Bowers, President of the Asso- 
ciation, presided, and acted as taastmaster. The 



speakers were Dr. Samuel K. Merrick, repre- 
esnting the Faculty of the Baltimore Medical 
College ; Dr. John C. Hemmeter, representing the 
Department of Medicine; Judge Walter L Daw- 
kins, of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore, repre- 
senting St. John's College; Mr. Thomas G. 
Mackenzie, representing the Department of Law; 
Dr. B. Merrill Hopkinson, representing the De- 
partment of Dentistry, and Dr. Henry P. Hyn- 
son, representing the Department of Pharmacy. 
Nearly one hundred persons were present and a 
fine dinner was served. 

Through the courtesy of the Provost we are 
able to gi\-e the following outline of his remarks : 

"I am extremely gratified by this expression of 
good feeling on the part of the Alumni of the 
University of Maryland. It gives me great en- 
couragement in carrying out the task which lies 
before me. 

"In your cordial welcome I see the manifesta- 
tion of a marked interest in the welfare of the 

"For such a purpose a meeting like this is full 
of potentialities. Here you are, men of all politi- 
cal shades of thought, men representative of 
every professional calling, men capable of effect- 
ing much. 

"The difikulty in the past has been to produce 
a united concentrated effort on the part of the 
alumni. There has been too much disposition to 
promise, and too little of the willingness to act. 

"First, we should endeavor to make the best of 
the resources we have, instead of lamenting the 
lack of what is not available. 

"Second, each alumnus should be inspired with 
a sense of responsibility for the welfare and 
progress of the University. 

"You alumni can bring to our aid invaluable 
suggestions from your vantage ground of expe- 

"As there are none who have greater pride in 
the University, so there are none to whom the 
University should be able to turn with greater 
assurance of help. 

"The Alumni are those to whom we look espe- 
cially for support in the community. The Uni- 
versity must have living friends. The gifts of 
the past exhaust themselves. The bounties of 
the present should run in a perpetual stream. We 
must have endowment for the Medical School 
and also for all the Schools of the University. 

"When I was in New York recently endeavor- 
ing to promote an Endowment Fund for St. 
John's College an example of what might be 
done by persevering effort was related to me. 

"Two alumni of a not very large college de- 
termined to set to work to raise an endowment 
for their college. They recognized the fact that 
they owed their present position to the education 
given them there, and that without it their prob- 
able career would have been far different. 

"Within two years they had secured $5,000.00, 
and during the third year they obtained a large 
donation from a wealthy man toward building a 
new Laboratory. Very shortly afterwards this 
same gentleman having become interested in the 
college by their efforts presented the sum of 
$100,000.00 for endowment. 

"There is sometimes an idea prevalent among 
• university men that the university career is 
simply a three or four year contract whereby, in 
consideration of a certain sum of money, the 
university is to supply him with a certain amount 
of knowledge, and to present him with a proper 
certificate, to notify the world that he has had it. 

"The transaction is completed, the doctor or 
lawyer regards the obligation on both sides at 
an end. 

"Now this is a fallacy. No man squares his 
account with his Alma Mater by the payment of 
his last term bill. He still owes her more than 
Desdemona owed father and lover both, and, 
among the most important and simplest of these 
duties is to subscribe for, read, and encourage in 
every possible way the publications giving infor- 
mation of the esoteric life of the University. 

"We look, therefore, to you alumni to add to 
the fair fame of this Uni\ersity, to which you 
belong. She looks to you, the living Maryland, to 
build upon the foundation so nobly laid in the

When back in the early days of the last cen- 
tury the University of Maryland was incorpo- 
rated with its four departments, namely: Medi- 
cine, Divinity, Law, Arts and Science, the 
founders of such an institution builded better 
than they knew, and it has ever since been the 
pride of the State of Maryland that those taking 
the degrees of this institution have passed out 
into the active service of their respective pro- 
fessions, to add luster upon their Alma-Mater, 
and bring renown and glory to the State. But 
no less entitled to a share in that glory, is that 
time honored Institution of Learning at Annapo- 
lis, which before the University was ushered into 
life had already begun its work among the peo- 
ple. I refer, of course to St. John's College, now 
a most important branch of the University of 
Maryland, and the distinguished head of which 
College is now the Provost of the University, 
and the guest of the Alumni Association this 

From St. John's College have gone into the 
law more men than have been furnished by any 
other institution of its kind in the State. When 
we look at its list of graduates, we find among 
them the names of men, who have helped to 
make the history of Maryland what it is, who 
have also taken a prominent part in the National 
affairs, and one of whom, a lawyer and a poet, 
gave to this Country its National anthem. We 
find among the list of names Francis Scott Key, 
John Johnson, the Chancellor, David Hoffman, 
William Kilty, Reverdy Johnson, Thomas S. 

Alexander, Theodoric Bland, and William H. 
Tuck, and on the bench of our Court of Appeals, 
and throughout our State, and within the limits 
of our own City, are numerous members of the 
judiciary, whose names are enrolled among the 
alumni of St. John's. It is, therefore, the duty 
of the Law to feel its obligation to St. John's 
College and the University of Maryland. 

My invitation stated that the object of this 
occasion was to get acquainted with Dr. Fell. 
How much more modest it would have been to 
have designated it an occasion for Dr. Fell to 
scan us over and learn what he can depend upon 
from us to show our interest in the University 
of Maryland. For not one of us but knows of 
Dr. Fell and the grand work he has been doing 
in the State of Maryland. This occasion should 
rather be one upon which the Alumni Association 
can express in some definite form its congratula- 
tions to the University in having secured the co- 
operation of Dr. Fell in the great work that still 
lies before it. 

And it should also be an occasion when the 
members of the Alumni Association can con- 
gratulate themselves that the work which rests 
upon them and which they were organized to do 
will now have the assistance of so able, so sin- 
cere and so loyal a friend and fellow laborer. 

Long after the University of Maryland had 
become distinguished as an institution which was 
sending out from its halls men, who by their 
skill and brains were revolutionizing the methods 
of alleviating pain, making the blind to see, the 
deaf to hear, and the lame to walk, and the 
strong arm of the law to become stronger, and 
the severities of justice to be softened by the 
qualities of mercy through the wisdom dispensed 
within its gates, there was born a new University 
with the traditional silver spoon in its mouth.

Nation until today she stands a world famed in-

in some branches, perhaps, a greater name than 
some whose foundations were back in the dark 
ages, where it is difficult if not impossible, to 
dissociate history from tradition. Endowment 
iipon endowment has poured into her coffers, 
and the State has added appropriations that she 
may carry on her miraculous work, till today she 
sets the pace for the world to follow. From 
time to time of late the rumor has been spread 
that a man, who has sat in the seat of the mighty, 
and whose reputation as a judge is known 
throughout the English speaking world, is to be 
called to occupy the chair of her chief Executive 
and to establish a new department of Jurisprud- 

And it is with such strength we must compete, 
holding our own as in the days that have passed, 
when such men as N. R. Smith, Miltenberger, 
Chisolm, Donaldson and Johnson stood for the 
department of medicine, and AVallis, Carter, Mar- 
shall, Poe, Venable and Phelps stood for the law. 
With the reputation of the University of Mary- 
land, and the strength of our sister institution in 
rnind, the regents had little time for experiment 
and none for mistake, in appointing a man to 
hold us in the future to the same degree of emi- 
nence as that which we have enjoyed in the past.

every energy, and strain every muscle, in the race 
v;e have set before us, and how best to win out, 
handicapped by insufficient means, unendowed, in 
need of better buildings and more modern equip- 
ment, is the burning question of the hour. Our 
new Provost has no easy task. 

Speaking of our endowment I noticed a short 
while ago in the College paper. Old Maryland, 
that a prominent member of the faculty had in- 
sured his life and so arranged it that the pro- 
ceeds therefrom could go towards an endowment 
fund for the University. Someone seemed to 
think that the prospect of the money in the 
future was rather a disappointing way of pro- 
viding for the present needs. But the fact that 
the institution has in hand such a donation re- 
minded me much of an old preacher in New 
York, about whom the story is told that on every 
Saturday night he went to a particular member 
of his parish and borrowed $5.00. On. the fol- 
lowing Monday morning the very identical $5.00 
was returned. At last the member of the church 
grew fretful and irritable because he could not 
unfathom the purpose of this application for a 
loan, and determined to ask the preacher why 
it was that he always returned the identical note. 
The preacher replied, "You know that on Satur- 
day night my funds are always consumed in the 
market basket and other household expenses, and 
you know with what vehemence I preach to my 
congregation to be liberal in the contributions, 
and how I have gone for them at times rather 
savagely, and how I have succeeded in getting 
from them for the use of the church large sums 
of money, well," said the preacher, "I have never 
felt that I can preach such a sermon unless I 
have in my pocket some real money that I could 
place my hand on once in a while." The gentle- 
man loaned him the $5.00, and it was returned. 
The next Saturday night he came back and re- 
quested a loan of $10.00 and explained that the 
increase in the amount of his request was be- 
cause he had heard that a noted financier, who , 
was known to be very close fisted, was going tol 
attend his church the following day and he 
wanted to try a $10.00 bill sermon on him. Il 
think that the Committee striving for endow-| 
ment for the University of Maryland is some-j 
■yvhat in the condition of that divine when theii 



know that the endowment fund holds an insur- 
ance contract for real money. I believe the 
example set is a good one and if every member 
of the Alumni Association could be induced to 
insure his life in such a way that the proceeds 
from some particular policy should go to the 
University, it is quite sure that he would not live 
to see the result of his particular work but those 
to come after him would, no doubt, reap the 
benefit of his sacrifice. 

Our pride in the wellfare of the University, 
our love for old St. John's, which has done so 
much in the past and is doing so much now to 
strengthen the sinews of the University, should 
raise in the heart of each alunmus, no matter 
what department has honored him by its degree, 
a stern determination to do his part whether it 
be large or small in securing the foundations of 
his Alma-Mater, so that hereafter no matter 
what adverse circumstances may prevail, the 
members of the Alumni Association may sing, 

"Ilail to tlie miitljer wlio t;i light us 

I'raise for tbe honors she brought us 
lu this hotir of her neoil be yon true 
Your duty uuflinchingly clo 
Fellow Alumui, the work is on you." 


After a few pleasantries with the toastmaster. 
Dr. Hynson spoke, in part, as follows : 

"I understand the specific duty that I have 
been called upon to lierform, Mr. Provost; it is 
to extend the cordial greetings, the felicitations 
and good wishes of the Department of Pharmacy. 
I am very proud to present this Department to 
vou and beg for it your honorable consideration. 

"The Department of Pharmacy was organized 
in 1841. It had its inception in the University of 
Maryland. For a time, it strayed away from the 
parent body, but, like our brothers of the Balti- 
more Medical College, whom we are so happy to 
have with us to-night, it finally returned to the 
parental roof and found there a cordial welcome 
and a helpful reunion. The Department of Phar- 
macy, Mr. Provost, is a creditable part of the 
University over which you have been called to 
preside. It has alumni numbering about twelve 

hundred. Many of these are scattered ove5,the 
length and breadth of this land of ours, filling 
and holding positions of honor and trust. They 
haA-e ever been conspicuous and helpful in na- 
tional pharmaceutical affairs. I am happy in 
the knowledge that it was the first alumnus of 
this department who read the first paper before 
the yVmerican Pharmaceutical Association, the 
greatest pharmaceutical body on this globe. It 
was an alumnus of this department and a rherfl- 
ber of our faculty who held the executive office 
of that body for twenty of its most active years 
and the impress of his strong editorial, pen is 
plainly evidenced in the most creditable volumes 
of its proceedings during that time. 

"The faculty of the department which I repre- 
sent, deducting one member, is a particularly 
strong one. Every member, save one, is an 
alumnus of our school and every member, save 
one, has written one or more of the text books 
used in that department. More than this, T be- 
lieve I can safely say that these are the most 
creditable pharmaceutical text books that have 
been written and are more large-lyused in schools, 
where members of their own faculties have not 
written such books, than any others.- We are 
proud of the abilities and the achievements of its 
members. . ; 

"The department is without encumbranC-e ; is 
full}^ able and does meet all its obligations -and 
has never, during all its life, had a single cerit 
from either City or State. 

"I can not congratulate you upon the honors 
of your office, because you enjoy greater honors; 
I can not congratulate you upon the emoluments 
of your office, for they are far too small, but I 
can most heartily and sincerely congratulate you 
upon the splendid and far-reaching opportunities 
that have come to you, through your election -as 
provost of the University of Maryland;- oppor- 
tunities to extend its usefulness as a part of the 
educational system of the State whose name it 
bears. Maryland expends, annually, more than 
two millions and, perhaps, three millions of dol- 



Manufacturers of 




lars for the education of her youth and it is fit 
and proper that its nominal university should 
become the cap-stone of its improved and better 
organized educational system; these are great 
and most promising possibilities and, to my mind, 
this is the peculiar and particular time to press 
their furtherance. 

"I bring you in fullness and in sincerity the 
good will — the loyalty — the support of the De- 
partment of Pharmacy and wish you God speed 
in all your undertakings." 


The Faculty of Physic of the University of 
Maryland, cooperating with the Baltimore & 
Ohio Railroad Company, have caused to be con- 
structed at the University Hospital, corner of 
Lombard & Greene Streets, Baltimore, Mary- 
land, a ward for the reception of the Baltimore 
& Ohio Railroad Company's patients, and for 
other patients of a like character when the ward 
is not entirely occupied by the Railroad Com- 
pany's people, in memory of Dr. Summerfie'd 
B. Bond who was our Chief Medical Examiner 
for many years. He was a graduate of the 
University of Maryland and formerly occupied 
the chair of Clinical Professor of Genito-Urinary 
diseases. Dr. Bond died at his home, No. 1023 
Cathedral Street, on December 21st, 191 1, at th3 
age of 51 years. 

Dr. Bond had many traits of character which 
endeared him very much to the people with whom 
he came in contact. He was optimistic to a 
marked degree, so much so that those of us who 
were fortunate enough to know him well of: 
times wondered if the sun really was always 
shining for him as it seemed to be even under ad- 
verse conditions ; and those of us who were for- 

" Nothing Too Large — Nothing Too Small " 



353-363 Equitable Building 

tunate enough to know him well can truly say 
he was the most unselfish individual that we 
have ever known. In his contact with his fellow- 
practitioners it was characteristic of him to al- 
ways belittle his own efforts and to praise the 
other fellow ; this was particularly so with the 
young men, the students, many times sacrificing 
his own financial prosperity so that he might aid 
a colleague, and this Memorial, marked as it is 
with a bronze tablet on which are inscribed the 
words as the head of this article, is a loving 
tribute to the graciousness and unselfishness of 
Summerfield B. Bond. 

The Bond Memorial Ward now occupies the 
position formerly occupied by Medical Ward 
"H" ; it is situated in the Greene Street wing of 
the Hospital, taking in the entire second floor. 
The ward has been entirely reconstructed. The 
old ventilating shaft formerly in the middle of 
the ward has been removed giving an unob- 
structed view of the entire length of the room. 
A great deal of thought was given to the con- 
struction of the floor and we have what we 
think is the ideal floor for a ward of this kind. 
It is entirely fire proof, vermin proof, of a beau- 
tiful brick color and absolutely sanitary. The 
angles formed by the junction of the side walls 
and the floor have been coved so that there can 
be no collection of dirt in the corners. Behind 
this coving have been placed electric outlets be- 
tween each pair of beds for the convenience of 
examining patients at night, for the attachment 
of electric heating apparatus and diagnostic in- 
struments. We also have outlets for gas so that 
continuous hot applications may be made for each 
individual bed. 

At the southern extremity of the ward we 
have a room large enough to hold two surgical 
beds for the reception of seriously ill patients, or 
patients recovering from anaesthesia, or for the 
reception of any patients that it is necessary to 
remove from the ward for various reasons. This 
room is lighted by two windows which are 
guarded by steel grill work. Opposite to this 
we have a modern bath-room with the most up- 
to-date and sanitary fixtures. At the north end 
of the ward on the street side we have a diet 
kitchen, also fitted with up-to-date sanitary fix- 
tures; opposite to this, at the same end of the 


ward, we have a nurses' office where the supplies 
and the patients' clothing are kept. 

On the porch there has been constructed a 
modern operating room on a small scale ; this 
room connects both with the ward and the eleva- 
tors, so that patients may be brought directly 
into the room from the elevator. Adjoining this 
there is a sun parlor, 42 feet in length, enclosed 
in glass, steam heated, for the use of convalescing 
patients. Beyond this we have an open porch. 

The entire ward, together with the rooms, sun 
parlor, etc., have been given four coats of the 
best grade enamel paint that could be purchased, 
the color scheme of which consists of a dark 
grey green base with a lighter grey green side 
wall and a cream ceiling; this with the color of 
the floor, a deep brick red, makes an extremely 
attractive room. The lighting is by numerous 
plain finished round globes close up to the ceil- 
ing, there being a sufficient number to brilliantly 
illuminate the ward at night. The lighting of 
the various rooms is all on different circuits so 
they can be controlled by a switch box in the 

This ward has been furnished throughout with 
the very latest type of hospital furniture, con- 
sisting of 22 beds complete, each bed being fitted 
with the modern vermin proof springs with large 
rubber tire wheels and so arranged that the head 
or foot of the bed may be raised or lowered 
whenever desired. We also have four surgical 
beds with the Fowler spring attachment. There 
are 22 side tables, i dozen back rests, 8 rubber 
tired steel wheel, divided leg, rolling chairs, 2 irri- 
gator stands, 4 large bed screens, 2 rubber tired 
clothes hampers, a ward surgical dressing car- 
riage, a plate glass and enamel medicine case 
and a most modern portable electric apparatus. 

In the operating room we have a modern sani- 
tary lavatory with foot controls for the hot and 
cold water and water pressure sterilizer with 
filtering apparatus, an instrument sterilizer, an 
instrument dressing cabinet, a modern operating 
table and a formaldehyde sterilizer for those 
instruments that are destroyed by boiling. This 
room is intended to take care of emergency sur- 
gical cases and has been especially fitted out with 
all the modern urological diagnostic instruments 
of precision. This room can be made totally dark 

so that it can be conveniently used as a cystopic 
and endoscopic examination room ; an electric 
control is placed within convenient reach and the 
formaldehyde sterilizer keeps the instruments in 
readiness for use at all times. 

The Alumni and all our friends are cordially 
invited to visit the Ward, especially the Urologi- 
cal Room, whenever at the Hospital and they may 
be assured of a welcome at all times. 


On Saturday, Dec. 2, 1893, fire broke out in 
the Heiser Building, 32 and 34 S. Paca St., a 
few minutes before 5 P. M. In three hours the 
flames wrought damage of over $360,000, burn- 
ing out the heart of the block bounded by Paca, 
German, Greene and Lombard Sts. The Heiser 
Building was a large 6-story double warehouse 
erected in 1886 at a cost of $100,000. The chem- 
ical and physiological laboratory of the Univer- 
sity, in rear of the Heiser Building, was totally 
destroyed. It contained the laboratories and dis- 
secting room of the University and had just been 
erected. Most of the apparatus was saved by the 
students, who also removed the library and fur- 
niture from the Law Building. In the dissecting 
room on the upper floor there were eleven bodies, 
including that of Uncle Perry, former Janitor of 
the room, who had died some weeks before. This 
individual had attained considerable notoriety 
through his implication in the murder of old 
Emily Brown (the famous "Burking" case). The 
main building of the University was slightly dam- 
aged. Lectures were continued in the clinical 
amphitheatre at the Hospital. Baltimore Medical 
College offered its rooms but they were declined 
as the necessary accommodations could be ob- 
tained at home. Laboratory work was conducted 
in the Dental Building. Rebuilding was not be- 
gun till Spring. 

I visited Dr. George G. Farnandis, '52, at his 
city residence, 1721 Md. Ave., Balto., in January, 
1900. He was a tall, large, portly, handsome old

man, of 71, though not looking so old, with a 
large, well-shaped head and lofty forehead, with 
gray mustache and whiskers. His presence was 
commanding and he must have been very hand- 
some in early life. He seemed unwilling to give 
details of his life and preferred that no notice 
of it should go into the Medical Annals. He 
would not tell his age. He dwelt particularly on 
his Confederate Army experience and his trou- 
bles at the University. He held the Demonstra- 
torship of Anatomy for a brief time in 1861 and 
was at the same time Physician to the Baltimore 
City and County Almshouse, where he used tti 
deliver lectures to the students. Professor Ham- 
mond knew little of anatomy, saying he was a 
physiologist, as if one could teach that and not 
know anatomy also. Had very little opinion of 
him as man, surgeon or teacher. Hammond took 
advantage of the presence in the hospital of a 
poor fellow whose toes had sloughed off in con- 
sequence of frostbite but whose feet had healed 
up well. He professed to perform Chopart's 
amputation on him, but sawed away with knife, 
unable to strike the joint in front of the astrag- 
alus and wound' up by bending and breaking the 
bone off. The end of the foot was brought to 
Farnandis by one of the students and the former 
criticised the operation and refused to give up 
the specimen. Hammond brought the matter be- 
fore the Faculty. Warren wanted Parnandis 
summoned and a full discussion held. Smith and 
Chew were friendly to F. and wanted him to 
withhold his resignation. The others said either 
Hammond or Farnandis must go. Miltenberger 
wrote to F. saying the Faculty would receive his 
resignation if again offered, which was done. 
During the Civil War, F. was surgeon in the 
C. S. A., first on Kirby Smith's staff, later on 
the Medical Examining Board, examining all the 
surgeons appointed in the Trans-Mississippi De- 
partment. He was born in Baltimore, but his 
mother removed to the family seat in Harford 
Co., where she died. Dr. F. died in Balto. Apr. 

4, 1909, aged 80.

"When I came to Baltimore in 1827, many of d 
the leading practitioners were the disciples of tI 
Rush. Inflammation was regarded as the es- 
sence of all disease and the lancet the great rem- 
edy. It occurred to me to see much of the prac- 
tice which was founded on these principles. I 
have seen bleeding freely practiced in pulmonary 
consumption, in typhus and in typhoid fever. I 
have seen anemia, characterized as it often is 
by occasional violent reaction in the heart and 
arteries, treated by the lancet, which was per- 
haps the very agent that had caused the disease. 
All this has happily passed away but it is greatly 
to be lamented that theorists, in receding from 
one extreme, cannot stop at the happy medium 
but must necessarily oscillate into the opposite 
absurdity. Have we not in our time heard the 
lancet universally condemned as a remedial agent 
and calomel and tartar emetic stigmatized as 
poison and do they not contend for treatment 
directly the opposite of that, the success of 
which was boasted of by the theorists of 50 years 
ago ?" N. R. Smith, Memoir of Dr. J. H. 0' Don- 
ovan, 1870. (Christopher Johnston, a colleague 
of Smith, condemned bloodletting in toto. Speak- 
ing of it to his class, he said, "you come here, 
gentlemen, to learn how to save life, not to de- 
stroy it"). 

In an oral communication in 1899, the late 
Dr. George J. Preston said that the professors 
at the College of Physicians and Surgeons had 
gotten no salary for four years. It took 200 
students to meet the expenses of the College. He 
agreed with me that no college could maintain 
itself permanently without endowment. He had 
proposed two years before that the schools should 
unite and each do separate work, one as a patho- 
logical laboratory, another as an anatomical 
school, etc. In this he had in view the union of 
the University of Maryland, the College of Phy- 
sicians and Surgeons and the Baltimore Medical 
College. The College of Physicians and Sur- 
geons had strictly abided by the rules of the 
Association of American Medical Colleges. 

In the Md Med. and Snrcj. Jl, Oct. 1839, p. 
no, the Editors urge the establishment of a 
dental school or chairs in medical schools de- 
voted to that branch. Haydeh and Harris were 
at this time working in that direction. ^ 



The late Dr. Thomas Fridge Murdoch, '50, 
was on the side of the North in the Civil War 
and profited much by that fact. The United 
States authorities were at that time discussing 
taking possession of the Baltimore Lifirmary 
(now "University Hospital") and running it as a 
government hospital. They wanted Murdoch to 
assume charge of it but he discouraged the proj- 
ect and it was abandoned. The Professors at the 
University were all southern sympathizers. In 
early life he was a member of a social medical 
club of ten, of which Christopher Johnston was 
President and Frank Donaldson, James A. Steu- 
art, Charles O'Donovan, Samuel C. Chew, W. C. 
Van Bibber, Riggin Buckler, John Mackenzie and 
Ferd. E. Chatard were members. They met and 
had supper at each others' houses every two 
weeks. It kept up for two or three years (there 
is a picture of this club at the Library. Donald- 
son referred to it in the notes from his diary pub- 
lished in Old Maryland some months ago). 
Later about 1875 a large social club was founded 
by Chisolm and continued for 25 or more years.

February 6, 1831, to his Sister Christine: "As 
I have just finished reading the Vicar of Wake- 
field, and it wants some half hour 'till Reveille, 
I cannot better devote the time than to writing 
you a little note. How cold it has been of late. 
Our ears and noses are almost cut off by the wind 
in crossing the plain here. You are, no doubt, 
enjoying your sleigh parties with great zest. I 
ought to congratulate you on the fine snow but 
it has totally interrupted our skating. We al- 
ways have plenty of, occupation, and excellent, 
too. I suppose you are busy reading; what 
books? I am afraid you let the long roll of ex- 
cellent advice in my last go for nothing, which 
maybe you think it was worth. You must not 
do what I told you in the latter part sure enough. 
I was joking, you know. So Mary did not 
think proper to send a word or line by your last. 
Very well ; I hope she is well. Tell that little 

renegade Kit" (his younger sister) "that I 
never mean to write to her again." 

".loth. I take up my pen without anything 
to say and merely to conclude what I was inter- 
rupted in the other morning. The weather has 
moderated very much. Reminded by that and 
the lengthening of the days, we begin to hail with 
delight the approach of spring — the last of my 
cadetship. Anxious as I have been at times to 
get off, there is something truly melancholy in 
that reflection. We almost forget the passage of 
time till reminded of it by events and, when thus 
reminded, the first perception of it is attended 
with as much surprise as if it were a thing not to 
have been counted upon. It is, too, ever attended 
by melancholy feelings. There is at times a 
sensation of loneliness and desertion when we 
think of former periods when we were sur- 
rounded by friends and all the pleasure of child- 
hood. It is not the conviction that we might 
have devoted our time more profitably, nor" the 
regret that we have not done so, nor the remem- 
brance that we have lost some dear friends in 
the interval, that produces this mournful train of 
thought. But it is the feeling that we are every 
day moving further from those green sunny 
days of childhood, which as time has erased 
the recollection of their pains, the imagination is 
ever ready to depict brightly beaming with pleas- 
ure, and that in exchange for them we are en- 
tering upon a world which presents rather a 
rough exterior. Adieu, with my best love to 
the family. I suppose you are all expecting the 
great eclipse on Saturday. Most affectionately, 
my dear C, your brother. P. S. — This sheet 
is upon the eve of departure. I unfold it to add 
one word to Mary H., tho' she does not deserve 
a syllable. Why did she not say something in 
your letter last time? Was she afraid that her 
pen would betray that she had forgotten our 
old play days? Those days when we were as 
brother and sister and ceremony and formality 
and such trash were not of our vocabulary. No, 
such, I know, is not the case. I love her too

A prominent and distinguished member of 
the Medical Factilty remarked recently, that we, 
of this University, are too much disposed to rely 
upon its past, to be content with what it has done, 
and not to worry with what it is doing and is 
going to do. The present and the future are far 
more important than the past and no institution 
can rely upon its past, however gloriotis. It must 
be ever striving to better itself, ever looking 
ahead to meet new needs There is a keen strug- 
gle going on — are we fully alive to it and are 
we entering into it with all our strength? Are 
we fully meeting the demands of the times and 
doing our very best? Are we as thorough as we 
should be? Are we doing all we can to perfect 
the training of our students and enable them 
to reach the head in their profession? Is there 
anything lacking which may give them occasion 
to reproach us hereafter for neglect? These are 

vital questions which demand our most constant 
and most earnest consideration. 

Then the all-absorbing ciuestion of finances; 
are we aware of its vital importance — do We act 
as if we were? We have been told again and 
again, that money is a vital necessity to this in- 
stitution — do we realize that means life or death? 
If a man felt the force of those words, would 
he, if he were a true and loyal alumnus, continue 
to do nothing and wait for the end to come? 
Look forward 20 years, 10 years, even 5 ; can you 
not realize what will take place in these years? 
Oh ! that some one could put life in these dry 
bones ! Our hope is in Doctor Fell. 

The excellent and complete description of the 
new Baltimore and Ohio ward is from the pen 
of Professor Page Edmunds, surgeon in charge. 
The ward has been constructed under his super- 
vision and no one is so competent to write it up 
as he, for he is familiar with all its details. In 
inception, no less than construction, it is his 
work and the LTniversity owes him a deep debt 
for having gotten the railroad authorities to 
build and equip it. While it is nominally a 
monument to the lamented Dr. Bond, it will also 
always serve to testify to the energy and enthu- 
siasm of its founder. The capacities of the 
University Hospital are greatly increased and 
extended by this beautiful ward, to be main- 
tained in perpetuity by this great railroad. 

The proposal to invite Dr. Friedinann here to 
demonstrate his anti-tubercular turtle serum at 
University Hospital has not as yet been adopted 
by the Medical Faculty. It seems to us that it 
would be better to await the results of the trial 
in New York. The question cannot be deter- 
mined in haste. The history of the Koch tuber- 
culin should teach us patience. 

The Provost of the University left Baltimore 
on the 14th inst. for Richmond, Va., where he 
attended the conference for Education in the 
South, which met April 15-18. A number of 
prominent educators, including presidents and 
members of college faculties, discussed the best 
means for the further development of education 
in the Southern States.

The Third Annual Peace Oratorical Contest, 
mentioned in our last issue as about to be held 
on April 4 in McCoy Hall, Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity, resulted in a victory for St. John's Col- 
lege. The first prize of $75 for the best oration 
on international peace, was won by Mr. Calvert 
Magruder, a member of the senior class and 
editor of St. John's Collegian. 

"The Third Hague Conference and Certain 
Phases of the Peace Movement" was the subject 
of Mr. Magruder's oration, in which he discussed 
the important problems and duties of the inter- 
national conference of 1915, the position in the 
peace movement which America has assumed 
and should assume and the aid which can be 
given to the furtherance of peace. Mr. Magru- 
der's effort was distinguished by logical arrange- 
ment, by clearness of thought and force of de- 

The other contestants were from Georgetown 
University, Johns Hopkins University, Wash- 
ington College and Loyola College, and the first 
won the second prize of $50. The judges were 
former Mayor J. Barry Mahool, Ex-Judge Al- 
fred S. Niles, Mr. William H. Morriss, Rev. H. 
B. McCormick and Mr. Thomas H. Bowles. The 
Hall was crowded. 

The University may claim equal credit with 
St. John's in Mr. Magruder's performance, as he 
is an Associate Editor of this Journal and will 
soon receive a degree here. We congratulate him 
most heartily on his success and ourselves on the 
prospect of the acquisition of so bright and prom- 
ising a young alumnus. 

A report on the medical libraries of the world, 
published in the Medical Record of March 15, 
gives statistics to that date. We have gleaned 
some interesting details. There are 145 entries 
of which ^2) belong to the United States. Syria, 
India, Manila and Japan are represented. The 
largest collections are those of the Faculty of 
Medicine of Paris, 210,000; Imperial Military 
Academy of St. Petersburg, 180,000; Surgeon- 



Your Bank Aceouat 


General's Library, Washington, 175,507; Royal 
Academy of Medicine, Brussels, 100,000; Royal 
College of Physicians, Edinburgh, 100,000; Col- 
lege of Physicians, Philadelphia, 95,896; Acad- 
emy of Medicine, New York, 92,000; Sencken- 
burg Library, Frankfurt-am-Main, 87,256; 
Royal Society of Medicine, London, 80,000. The 
library of the University of Maryland holds no 
mean rank in the list With its 11,000 vols., it 
comes 62d with 83 below it. Of the 42 univer- 
sity and college libraries, it is 19th with 23 below 
it. It will surprise most persons to learn that 
Calcutta, India, has a library of 50,000 volumes, 
and Manila, Philippine Islands, one of 23,308. 
Of American universities listed, ours is exceeded 
only by Harvard, Chicago, Leland Stanford and 
Johns Hopkins (11,600) ; it exceeds Boston, Buf- 
falo, Vermont, Northwestern, Texas, Minnesota, 
Tulane, Columbia and Syracuse. There is great 
emulation and progress, however, so that the 
figures will change rapidly and it will be difficult, 
we fear, to hold our position long. 

Dr. VV. H. Welch was in the full tide of his 
brilliant career as teacher and had attracted to 
Baltimore such men as the late Christian A. Her- 
ter and W. S. Halsted of New York ; W. T. Coun- 
cilman, now of Harvard; A. C. Abbott, now of 
the University of Pennsylvania ; F. P. Mall, later 
at Clark University and the University of Chi- 
cago, and many others of equal prominence, 
who were all deeply engaged in medical research. 
Possessing encyclopedic knowledge, unusual gen- 
iality and large-mindedness in his relations with 
other men and a gift of exposition, so essential 
to the true teacher, he has been an active factor 
in the University and Hospital for many years. 
He is above all an investigator with a judicial 
cast of mind and with the ability to stimulate m 
his associates and students to productive work 
and the greater ability to exercise' a wise control 
over them. Dr. Hurd, Early Days of Johns 
Hopkins Hospital and Medical School, J. H.

Nov. 13, 1831, to his Sister- Christine: "You 
have, no doubt, long since given up all idea of 
ever hearing from me again. Not so, however. 
I mean still occasionally to trouble you. The 
fact is there is nothing here worth writing about 
and I do not like frequently to inflict upon you 
a sheet full of repetitions. I continue to like this 
place. My time is entirely tho' agreeably occu- 
pied. There is only one great want and that 
is society. Most of the good people here want 
polish, having become stiff and awkward by over 
attention to study. We have one real lady with 
us tho', the lady of Lieut. Pendleton, formerly 
Miss Page, of Chesterfield Co., Va., a relative 
of the Pages and Nelsons, of Frederick. She is 
a charming woman. Write to me soon and give 
me the news of the farm and neighborhood. Tell 
me how my friend Miss Juliet comes on. I be- 
lieve I enquired for her in my last and called 
her Harriet. I am, however, notorious for for- 
getting names. But especially tell me what has 
become of Sir Harold Harfagen, and whether 
he has improved since I left home. My love to 
the family and to the Hopkinses, if any are with 
you. P. S. — You were, of course, present at 
Marietta's wedding? Do give me some account 
of it. She is one of the sweetest women I ever 
saw. Why did not Hal add a postscript to your 
last? H she is with you, make her do so when 
you write again." 

New York, March 29, 1832, to his Sister Chris- 
tine : "Don't let my long silence make you think 
me disposed to retaliate, my dear lassie with 
the lint-white locks, but only that I have been 
a' little lazy or so. In fact I have very good 
reasons for not having written sooner, but a 
truce with reasoning for the present. I have al- 
lowed so long a time to pass by that I don't 
know where you are, what you are doing or even 
what to say to you ; for if you are at home, I 
wish to send a few messages. There, however, 
I shall address you and if you have gone down 
the country, it will be to your loss, since my let- 
ter will reach you so much the later. Henry" 

(Major Henry Smith Turner, later of St. 
Louis) "spent a day or two with me last week, 
having come down on business. I am very fond 
of him and he is an ornament to his name. By 
the bye, who told you that idle story about him 
and Miss Randolph ? I have heard she is a very 
sweet girl. I have just this moment been very 
much shocked by hearing of Uncle Tom's dread- 
ful misfortune" (the burning of his home, "Kin- 
loch," in Fauquier Co., Va.)- "It is announced 
to me in today's Intelligencer. I love my uncle 
very much, as well as all his family and propor- 
tionate to my love for them is the intensity with 
vvhich I lament their calamity. Tell me where 
they have gone — some to Wheatland, I presume, 
of course. At your leisure send me the words 
of some of those songs you used to sing for me 
last summer." 


"Small fevers thankfully received" will soon 
be the slogan of the Seniors. 

Mr. Caldwell, of the Junior Class, has now 
completely recovered from his attack of cellulitis 
which confined him to the hospital for a number 
of days. Mr. Caldwell was under the care of 
Dr. Spruill. 

The last meeting of the present school year 
of the Randolph Winslow Surgical Society was 
held Monday, March 31, at 8 P. M., in Davidge 
Hall. Certificates of membership signed by the 
Flonorary President, Prof. Winslow and by the 
active officers were presented to each member. 
Mr. Norment was elected temporary President. 

The Senior finals have commenced and at the 
present time Skin, State Medicine and Ortho- 
pedics are out of the way. Doniinus Vobiscum 
for the rest, say we. 

Dr. Gichner is confined to his home by sick- 

Drs. Stoner and Macks have been vaccinating 
with Typhoid vaccine a goodly number of the 
Junior Class. If someone could find an agent

that would immunize us against getting less than 
75 in the exams, we sure would be extremely 
grateful — ^but we have a suspicion that that vac- 
cine already exists in the form of hard work and 
plenty of it. ' "Stayin' up nights bonin' never 
killed anyone," says Patsy Obar, "it's the loss 
o' sleep that kills." 

The Freshmen have not been much in the 
limelight of Old Maryland's print, in the past — 
not that we purposely intended to slight the 
movulating embryos of doctordom, but news 
from the Freshmen has been a thing remote — 
just like a graveyard. However, they have come 
to the point by putting out a baseball team — 
and their first game resulted in a victory — for 
the other fellows. Their opposing team was 
Polytechnic, the score 9 — 2. 

Mr. Lutz, of the Junior Class, has recovered 
almost entirely the vise of his arm. It will be re- 
membered that Mr. Lutz fractured the olecranon 
process of his ulnar bone some time ago. 

The Saturday afternoons of the Juniors are 
pretty well occupied. While Dr. Taylor does 
not have the class at the Kernan Hospital, Dr. 
Shipley and the various teachers of Physical 
Diagnosis entertain them at the Bay View Hos- 

Dr. Adler is now lecturing to the Juniors on 

''What does Commencement day mean?" some- 
one asked and a wit replied — 'Tt"s the day on 
which a college graduate commences hunting for 
a job." From the outlook, the Seniors will not 
have to hunt much for practically every man in 
the class has secured an appointment. 

The Sophomores have finished the course in, 
Physiological Laboratory, so now the frogs will 
have peace. 

The Sophomore Class extend their sympathies 
to their fellow classmate, Mr. Roskin, of Savan- 
nah, Georgia, whose mother died recently.

The peaceful quiet of the law school has had 
little about which any interest might attach dur- 
ing the past two months. The legal minds in 
their development are getting a taste of the 
quiet, which ofttimes follows them into practice, 
to the detriment of the exchequer. 

A reason for this lack of excitement and news 
for our readers we are not able to discover. It 
would give the Editor a great deal of pleasure 
to be able to record some feat performed or 
movement started which might be of interest, 
but alas, there is nothing of the kind. Everyone 
is pursuing his own way, reading his cases, 
thinking out his own problems and the halls of 
our school resound not with the clamor of anar- 
chistic tumult. 

This lack of news, this apathy, however, while 
much deplored from a journalistic standpoint, 
still indicates that our boys are studying hard ; 
that they are doing what they came to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland to do, and in the end the 
benefit will be theirs and ours. 

Since we were last in print, Mr. Want has 
begun his Bar Quizes, and they are well attended. 
Starting at an early date as he has, Mr. Want 
will be able to go over all the ground in a thor- 
ough manner and if the men can only find the 
time to be regular in their attendance, few of 
them should fail to pass the final test. The 
classes meet on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs- 
day evenings. 

In addition to these 'meetings Mr. Want has 
arranged to have Sunday afternoon Quizes, at 
which time two of the quizes given during the 
preceding week will be reviewed. 

The first Monday in April was the date given 
for the handing in of the thesis and it is hoped 
that every member of the senior class was able 
to write, what he considered, at least, the prize 
winner. All cannot win the prize, it is true, but 
all can congratulate the winner and to this end 
we are awaiting the award. 

"How to find the law," a useful bit of knowl- 
edge, served up a little rare, with a distinct 
comedy dressing, was a dish placed before the 
school during the past week. It was quite an 
appetizer and Mr. Daly, who acted as the prin- 
cipal speaker on these festive occasions, stirred 



up in our young minds, by his canonade of 
English, both ancient and modern, a conception 
at least, that the law could be found and that he 
could find it and that we could too, if we had 
the American Digest. Having driven home this 
useful bit of information, we received some 
"scattered thoughts," which beggar description 
and so he departed. Selah. 

Mr. Charles M. Henderson, one of our most 
studious, energetic, popular and good-looking 
(although he is a little short) seniors, we are 
proud to relate has been appointed Secretary to 
Judge Harlan, the Dean of the Law Department, 
and, I am informed, he is ready at all times to 
help any of us along who are seeking knowledge 
regarding the Law Course, as well as to take 
our tuition fee. We wish him success. 

Professor Frank, who was prevented by illness 
from carrying on his course, is again at work. 
He spent a few days in Atlantic City before re- 
turning to his duties.

Dr. L. A. Bragg, 1901, now located at Warm 
Springs, Va., recently visited us, having stopped 
off while on his way to New York City, where 
he has gone to arrange for the taking over of his 
brother's practice in the metropolis. 

Dr. D. T. B. Houston, president of the class 
of 1912, spent some days in mingling with the 
students and instructors. David is a loyal Uni- 
versity of Maryland man and it seems good to 
have had him with us after an absence of one 

Dr. B. B. Ide, of Lockport, N. Y., class of 
1902, was called to this city during the week of 
April 7, by the death of his wife's sister. He 
only recently returned from a visit to the west, 
where he took a special course of instruction in 
analgesia by nitrous oxide and oxygen, under 
Dr. Barber, of Chicago. Dr. Ide is very enthu- 
siastic over this method of painless dentistry and 
contemplates coming to Baltimore and specializ- 
ing in it. 

Walter L. Pierce, druggist, met the members 
of the senior class on April 11 and discussed 
the Buckley line of special dental remedies. 

Dr. Jessie DeFord gave a lecture and demon- 
stration to the members of the senior class, on 
April 12, her subject being "Analgesia by the 
Use of Somnoform." Quite a number of the 
students tested the quality of the agent by in- 
haling it themselves. The method calls for a 
dilution of the Somnoform by the admixture of 
air, so as to limit its effect to the early stages of 
narcosis, short of the exciting stage. 

Dr. S. P. Dean, class of 1900, paid us a short 
visit recently. He is located in New Orleans and 
reports that the various alumni in that section 
are doing well.

and have been in almost daily use by investiga-

Dear Doctor — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly inves- 
tigate New York pharmacies and certify to the worth of 
those that meet reasonable modern requirements in stock, 
in equipment ad in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifica- 
tion. The character of work we have been doing for more 
than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly and firmly 
established us in your esteem and favorably testifies as to 
our abilities and methods.

Pharmacists to Physicians and their Patients, 




Mr. Toastiiiastcr and Mr. Provost — 

I fear the story of the merger is entirely too 
long and certainly somewhat inappropriate for 
this occasion. As I understand, we are here to- 
night primarily to honor Dr. Fell, our New Pro- 
vost, who has but recently been inducted into 
office. My remarks will, therefore, be brief and 
merely refer to some of the results of the mer- 
ger rather than to the merger itself. 

To begin, I wish first to express my pleasure 
at seeing an honored member of the Medical De- 
partment, Professor Randolph Winslow, present 
tonight. He and I were medical students at the 
University at the sarhe time, and I want to speak 
of a very distinct service he rendered in the mer- 
ger proceedings. I refer to the question of 
titles for the members of the Faculty of the Bal- 
timore Medical College. We got most of them 
adjusted, but there were two or three, and one in 
particular, we studied over several weeks, but 
could find no satisfactory solution of the diffi- 
culty. The whole question was turned over to 
Dr. Winslow, and when he came to my office and 
presented the list of names with titles affixed for 
my inspection, I could not make a single sugges- 
tion. I submitted the list to our Faculty at its 
next meeting and it was adopted without a dis- 
senting vote. 

There has been a merger recently consum- 
mated between the Baltimore Medical College 
and the University of Maryland, whereby twelve 
members of the Facultyof the former institution 
have become professors in the University and 
two thousand and more Alumni will be eligible to 
membership in this association. This is the most 
important event in the evolution of medical edu- 
cation that has ever taken place in Baltimore. It 
will, in my opinion, give an impetus to the Uni- 
versity, far-reaching in its effects. You get the 
co-operation of a dozen good teachers, who are 
forceful and resourceful men, who have been 
trained in constructive educational work. 

They come to you as evolutionists and not as 
revolutionists. Evolution is essentially construc- 
tive, utilizing ideals, traditions, skill and culture, 
as well as the more material assets and building 
on these, better and broader and greater. Revo- 

lution is essentially destructive, tearing down and 
destroying, not infrequently, what is more valu- 
able than that which takes its place. Revolution 
is only beneficent as a rule when effected by evo- 
lution. AVe come to you in a spirit of co-opera- 
tion, and hope to dovetail the best efforts of 
which we are capable into the best efforts of 
which you are capable, and push the old Univer- 
sity on to wider usefulness. We do not come 
down here to make a square peg fit into a round 
hole, nor to make a round peg fit into a square 
hole. We come to assimilate, and not to disin- 

If the University is in a rut, let us all put our 
shoulders to the wheel and push her out, but first 
let us be sure the rut is in the road, and not in 
the eye of the observer. Let us not make the 
mistake of pushing her out of an imaginary rut 
en to a rougher road. But being thoroughly sat- 
ified that the rut is there,' we will push her out 
of it into the smooth macadam, where the going 
is good and the road is straight, and then throw 
her into high gear and keep her in high gear, and 
with Fell as Master Machinist and Coale, Harlan, 
Heatwole and Caspari by turns at the wheel and 
the combined Faculties at the throttle to give 
her gas, we will drive her on to a splendid des- 

To be many-sided, to possess flexibility of tem- 
per and suavity of manner, self-command, quick 
discernment, addi-ess, ready knowledge of human 
nature and the happy genius of adapting oneself 
to varying circumstances and to all kinds of peo- 
ple, are great necessities in our checkered pro- 
fession. Manners often make medical fortunes. 

Medical quarrels are a disgrace to the profes- 
sion ; therefore, while alive to your own interests, 
do not captiously follow up every trifling in- 
fringement, difficulty or apparent contradiction, 
as if you were ever on the watch for provoca- 
tions and angry collisions with your neighbors 
and courted a war with everybody for what you 
may be pleased to call your "rights." 

It is not good for man to be alone, and every 
physician should, M'hen his pecuniary circum- 
stances justify the step, look out for a good and 
wise helpmate with a healthy and faultless body 
and a blameless mind — 

Whose eyes will mark is coming 
And look brighter when he comes.

Jan. 22, to his sister Christine: "(Jur corre- 
spondence, my dear Tine, has been so interrupted 
of late by my movements and other causes, that 
it seems ahnost a novehy for me to be seated to 
address you. We must, however, my dear girl, 
amongst the ills of this life, bear with patience 
that of temporary separation. Some more 
auspicious period may enable us to enjoy unin- 
terruptedly the pleasures of social intercourse, of 
which I confess we have thus far had but little. 
I think I last addresed you a crude and hasty note 
from Fort Monroe. Since that you have doubt- 
less heard of my arrival here thro' my letters 
to other members of the family 

"There is much here of novelty to attract at- 
tention. The climate is more delightful than 
any I have ever experienced at this period of the 
year. We are now enjoying the spring of the 
North and the birds which visit you in the sum- 
mer seem to find here an agreeable retreat during 
the cold months. The brunette complexion, in- 
dicative of a warm climate, prevails. I have not 
yet visited at all in Charleston, but the specimens 
of the gentler sex whom I have casually met in 
their saunterings along King street have not forci- 
bly struck my fancy. 

"Charleston possesses few adventitious attrac- 
tions for one who has seen the finer cities to the 
north. Beyond a mild climate and some produc- 
tions peculiar to its soil, it is thus far rather un- 
interesting to me. But I doubt not that in its 
society will be found a fund of pleasure com- 
pensating for the want of any other recommenda- 

tion. The residents of this country bear a high 
character for polish and politeness of manner, 
which the few with whom I have formed ac- 
quair.tance have fully exemplified. 

2:)d. "The garrison from which I address 
you stands upon a small piece of ground about 
1,-1(10 yards from the mainland, with which there 
is no communication but by water. The island 
would hardly prove interesting to you as at high 
tide it is entirely overflowed and consequently 
produces nothing which could convey a sentiment 
thro' your Flora's vocabulary. The prospect, 
however, of the city on one side. Fort Moultrie 
on a second and Fort Johnston on a third, to- 
gether with a large expanse of water studded 
with vessels, is not without its attractions. We 
are between the mouths of the Cooper and 
Ashley rivers, which pass to the north and south 
of Charleston. I have taken a ride o\er the neck 
lying between them, which I found to be a flat, 
sandy country, differing in some of its produc- 
tions from anything in our part of Virginia. 

"Sullivan's Island, where I remained for a fort- 
night after our arrival, is a sandbank of more 
respectable size than our abode. It is, however, 
likewise covered at high tide. At a little dis- 
tance it presents the appearance of a city, being 
covered with the summer residences of the 
wealthy citizens of Charleston. These habita- 
tions, intended for occupation only during the 
heat of summer, are the most flimsy affairs you 
can imagine, consisting of weather board without 
plaster on the inside, and many without even 
paper or fire places — which latter are necessary 
to protect against the occasionally extreme mois- 
ture of this climate. But they are so constructed 
as, with very little expense, to present quite a 
handsome e.xterior, and I was much disappointed 
on getting into one for my quarters to find it so 
windy. The breakers which dash upon the shore 



with great violence are crested with foam and 
whiten the harbor for miles with their snowy 
caps, making a magnificent spectacle, but at the 
same time rendering the harbor very unsafe for 
entrance. The beach is a most beautiful one and 
is covered with pretty shells and various species 
of zoophytes, rare and curious to behold. 

"Write to me soon, my dear Tine, and tell 
me how you are enjoying yourself this winter, 
how you like your music and how you are im- 
proving yourself. I have received letters only 
from Papa, brothers Thomas and William since 
my arrival here. I put in the mail with this letter 
a paper containing the proceedings of a recent 
meeting of 'nullifyers,' which shows that they 
are pretty resolute. With love to my aunt and 
cousin, etc., your attached brother." 

April 6, to his sister Christine : "I have had 
the pleasure to receive your aflfectionate letter,

but there is comparatively very little now and in 
that I do not participate as I became quite worn 
out three weeks ago. Almost everybody has 
left town for the country where they will remain 
until the sickly season drives them back, to the 
north, etc. It is fatal in the summer season 
to sleep a single night in the country, even within 
two or three miles of town. But Charleston is 
most extraordinarily exempt and there the Caro- 
lina citizens find an asylum from the desolation 
that would speedily depopulate the country. 

"We have commenced to separate in the har- 
bor, one of our companies having departed for a 
southern post. Several of our officers, too, have 
been ordered off and the sloop of war Natchez 
has left us. The rest of us have been daily 
expecting orders for some time, but we are be- 
ginning to fear bring detained here during the 
summer. It was supposed that the company

present. If so you must depend upon reading; I 
hope you and Kit are devoting much time to his- 
tory, etc. 

"The country here at present presents all the 
vegetation and bloom of summer. The early 
flowers have been gone for some time, yet, the air 
is still fraught with perfume. I suppose that 
spring has made its appearance with you, too, 
and that Wheatland is now very beautiful. I 
have not enjoyed this season there for six 3'ears 

"Gi\e my love to all the family individually, 
of course Miss Phil, Hall and Cousin Mary, if 
with you." 

May 4, to his sister Christine: "My life 
passes so Cjuietly here in reading diversified only 
by an occasional siesta, that I require a little 
news, such as you send me, to remind me of the 
world. From the number of marriages you 
mention and others of which I have heard, I fear 
I shall find myself vastly in the minority when I 
return. I shall be obliged to get a wife to be in 
the fashion. 

"You tell me that Hall and Page have been 
writing in your Flora. Tell the former she must 
never get married without my consent. Give my 
best love to both her and Miss Phil. I have not 
forgotten my promise to accompany Miss Phil to 
Old Point this Spring. When do they go to 
Richmond ? 

"We expect to receive news this week of our 
destination for the summer, whether we shall go 
northward or remain in this country. I have 
projected a trip to the south before leaving here; 
it will take in Augusta and Savannah, the two 
prettiest southern towns, and extend as far as St. 
Augustine. Remember me particularly to Page"

love to all the family. Believe me truly, your 
affectionate brother. G. W. T." 





Dec. 3, 1893. I visited the University to see 
the results of the fire of yesterday. Policemen 
were guarding the entrance but Mr. Runge, the 
janitor, beckoned to me to come in and I was 



allowed to pass. The firemen were still playing 
upon the ruins of Practice Hall. Within, I 
found several of the Professors, Miles, Chisolni, 
Winslow, Atkinson and Chew and some alumni, 
whose interest had drawn them hither as mine 
had. The museum on the second floor, which 
until a short time before had been the dissecting 
room, was in a state of confusion. The shelves 
were mostly bare, the specimens having been hur- 
riedly removed in the excitement and alarm. 
Anatomical Hall looked desolate. A great hole 
had been burned through the dome-shaped roof 
on the north side, through which volumes of 
water had poured soaking chairs and floor and 
penetrating to Chemical Hall below. 

But Practice Hall had borne the brunt of the 
disaster. It had just been erected and we had 
met there upon invitation of the Medical Faculty 
only a few weeks before, to inspect the building. 
It was well adapted for the purpose of labora- 
tories, the old building having been run back to 
the alley and another story added. It contained 
the new chemical and pathological laboratories, 
fitted with costly microscopes and other appa- 
ratus and on the upper floor a superb dissecting 
room. I counted there 19 tables, with space for 
one or two more. There were ample facilities 
for reaching the entire first year class. The 
Dean, Dr. Coale, informed me that it was the 
largest and most completely furnished chemical 
department in the city and he should know, hav- 


Dear Doctor^ 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly inves- 
tigate New York pharmacies and certify to the worth of 
those that meet reasonable modern requirements in stock, 
in equipment ad in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifica- 
tion. The character of work we have been doing for more 
than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly and firmly 
established us in your esteem and favorably testifies as to 
our abilities and methods.

ing graduated at the Hopkins University. All 
these were now in ruins, only a few desolate and 
smoking walls and piles of brick attesting their 
late grandeur. Much of the apparatus, however, 
was saved through the exertions of the students 
and others, and fortunately the time of the oc- 
currence of the catastrophe (5 P. M.) was favor- 
able for the work of rescue. It will not cost very 
much to put the main building again in habitable 
order, but the Faculty will not rebuild Practice 
Hall until the Spring, meanwhile using the Dental 
Laboratory for histological and chemical work. 
The insurance upon the burnt building was 
$2,000, whilst the loss was $12,000. The- com- 
mittee would have completed the insurance for 
the full amount in one or two days had the fire 
not taken place when it did. 

Smallpox. March 30, 1757, owing to the pre- 
valence of the disease in Annapolis, the Governor 
issues a proclamation directing the Legislature 
to meet in Baltimore, April 5. It accordingly 
met there for the first and only time. In July the 
disease ceased its ravages in Annapolis, after 
having been epidemic there about nine months, 
and the Governor appointed Aug. 12 as a day of 
humiliation and ])rayer. Scarff's Baltimore

lasted from Apr. 8 to May 9.] 

Within the last 30 years the whole mode and 
tenor of medical investigations have undergone 
a complete revolution. The new and inexhausti- 
ble mine laid open by the great Bichat, in the 
creation of the science of general anatomy, has 
gradually alienated the attention of medical phi- 
losophers from their blind and exclusive attention 
to the hidden and impenetrable mysteries of 
vitalism and in proportion as it has become fixed 
upon the rich doman of structural anatomy, il- 
lustrated as it has been by a careful observance 
of vital phenomena, their investigations have 
been submitted to the guidance of the rules of 
induction and have conducted them from an ob- 
servance of isolated facts to the establishment of 
those legitimate conclusions which are the logical 
sequences of a true philosophical analysis. Min- 
ute anatomical structure must be the starting 
point of all physiological and pathological re- 
searches ; and it is just as impossible for an in- 
dividual who is devoid of this preliminarv 
knowledge to reason correctly upon the complex 
operations of the vital economy or to understand 



the intricate physiological and pathological laws 
of the living machine, as it would be for one 
who is ignorant of arrangement of a complex 
piece of mechanism to comprehend the principle 
of its action or to adjust its different parts. Eli

and Surgical Science, Vol. 2, 1835 [Geddings was

General Alumni Association, University of 

Baltimore, May- 5, 11)13. 
Dear Sir: 

Upon consultation with the Provost and some 
of the most prominent alumni, it has seemed to 
be a desirable thing to have the alumni repre- 
sented in costume, i. e., cap and gown, at the 
annual commencement of the University on Sat- 
urday, May 31. Caps and gowns will be for rent 
at the University on that day, or if you prefer to 
have your own cap and gown, you can get them 
from Cotrell & Leonard, Albany, N. Y. 

I would be pleased to know whether your pres- 
ence can be counted on upon this occasion. 
Sincerely yours,

The combined musical clubs opened their sea- 
son with concerts at Belair, Md., on April 18th, 
and at Delta, Pa., on the following evening. The 
college talent was at its best on both occasions, 
and, judging from the very flattering letters 
which the authorities received from those who 
heard the concert and entertained the visitors, a 
most favorable impression of Old St. John's was 
left behind. 

On Thursday and Friday, April 21th and 25th, 
Captain Schindel, U. S. A., made the annual gov- 
ernment inspection of the military department. 
The battalion made a very satisfactory showing, 
and the field maneuvers, especially, received the 
commendation of the inspector. 

Athletics : St. John's has de\'eloped an ex- 
ceptionally strong baseball team this season, hav- 
ing won to date (May Dth) 7 of the ten games. 
Returning from a successful Southern trip, St. 
John's took the Navy into camp by a 5-0 white- 
wash. The team was defeated by M. A. C. in a 
close game, but Captain Noble expects the return 
game on May 2-lth to tell a different tale. — At the 
Maryland Agricultural College field and track 
meet, held May 3d, St. John's swept the field with 
a total of 47 points, as against the 29 points of her 
nearest competitor, M. A. C. — The seniors, with 
a total of 37 points, won a recent inter-class field 
and track meet. Sophomores, second, 32. Fresh- 
men, third, 23. — St. John's scored another one 
against her Hopkins rivals when her tennis team 
defeated the Black and Blue, on May 7th, by a 
score of 4-2. Hopkins was expecting an easy 
victory, but S. J. C. showed surprising form. 

Alumni Notes: In the death last month of 
Daniel M. Thomas, of Baltimore, St. John's lost 
its oldest living alumnus. He graduated in 1846. 
— The engagement has been announced of Pay- 
master S. R. White, Jr., U. S. N., to Miss 
Dorothy E. Huchinson, of Baltimore. Paymaster

Dean R. Dorsey Coale reports that the fol- 
lowing members of the Adjunct Faculty have 
been made Professors in their respective depart- 
ments : Thomas C. Gilchrist, M. R. C. S., M. D., 
Dermatology; Frank Martin, B. S., M. D., Opera- 
tive and Clinical Surgery ; J. Mason Hundley, 
M. D., Clinical Gynecology; Jos. T. Smith, M. D.,

Dr. Gordon Wilson has recommended the fol- 
lowing books to the Juniors for Summer read- 
ing: "Immunity and Serum Therapy," by Rick- 
etts, published by the A. M. A.; "Clinical 
Pathology," a translation from the German of 
Krehl's "Pathological Physiology." For light 
reading, "The Life of Pasteur," by Vallery Ro- 
dot ; "The Life of Sir James Paget," by his son, 
and "The Life and Letters of Huxley." Dr. 
Wilson has also advised the Juniors to subscribe 
to the medical journals, particularly the Journal 
of the American Medical Association. "Allbutt's 
System of Medicine" the doctor regards as the 
best book for the students to purchase for use 
thruout their medical career, being a ready 
reference on practically any subject. 

Thru the instrumentality of Prof. Shipley, 
the Sophomore class of the Balto. Medical Col- 
lege were given an opportunity to become ac- 
quainted with their future classmates a few weeks 
ago. The students were well welcomed by the 
University boys and interchanges of class and 
college yells resounded on the campus. .-Vfter 
listening to Dr. Shipley's lecture on Materia Med- 
ica, the B. M. C. boys were shown about the 
school, the laboratories and the hospital. 

Prof. Marden, of the B. M. C, and next year 
our Professor of Histology and Embryology, 
gave a very interesting lecture and demonstra- 
tion on the Filaria Sanguinis Hominis, in the 



University Amphitheatre, during the past week. 
The embryo fiariae were obtained from the blood 
of a Freshman student at the B. M. C. Prof. 
Harden gave Dr. Asper a number of shdes whicli 
the future toilers in the Clinical Lab. will have 
to worry about, no doubt. 

Dr. Macks has been giving the Sophomore class 
in sections, weekly quizzes on Pathology, which 
are helping the Sophs very materially with their 
course. The general impression among the stu- 
dents is that Dr. Macks has made things hum 
this year, but of course there's no hard feeling — 
of course not, Terese, for we are here to learn 
and Dr. Macks to teach. 

For the first time in the history of the school, 
we believe, the Junior class have been compelled 
to perform Physical Examinations on patients at 
Bay View, which examinations are to count on 
their final examination sheets. We're not saying 
much but Lord 'a mercy on the students a few 
years from now. 

The Dean has given orders that hereafter smok- 
ing will not be permitted in Davidge Hall under 
any circumstances. After a recent examination 
held there the Dean picked up at least fifty unlit 
matches, while well-nourished Howard got to 
work with the broom and shovel and collected a 
bucket full of cigar and cigarette stumps. While 
to those who smoke the ruling seems a little 
drastic, still we must acknowledge its justice. 
Davidge Hall is an old biulding, a relic of 
other days, and contains books that are price- 
less, let alone it being one of the foremost 
school libraries in the country. Dr. Cordell 
has given much time and painstaking efforts 
to make it so, and any honor the school re- 
ceives thru its library is almost entirely the 
result of Dr. Cordell's untiring work. We 
could imagine that good doctor's feelings of 
he should come down some morning to find 
Davidge Hall suffering a fourth degree burn. 

Prof. Smith is helping Dr. Holland quiz the 
Sophs in Practical Anatomy. 

The members of the Junior Class thru Old 
Maryland wish to extend their very sincere 
thanks to Dr. Gordon Wilson for the splendid

manner in which he conducted the course in 
Medicine. Dr. Wilson claims he holds the record 
for flunking the most men, yet flunk or pass we 
know that we have osmosed some medicine. It 
was the doctor's habit to lecture 45 minutes and 
the rest of tlie hour was given the students in 
which to quiz the doctor, in which time you may 
be sure we were "wired" up on many things. 

Prof. Jos. T. Smith was obliged to postpone 
his examination in Hygiene a few days because 
of a business engagement out of town. The 
examination was held, however, Saturday, May 
10, at 2 P. M. 

Prof. Gordon Wilson has made the following 
appointments to the Bay View Hospital in the 
T. B. department: Chief Resident, Frank E. 
Callahan ; house residents, C. S. Neistadt and 
Jos. Sparck, all of the class of '13. 

The Senior final exam, in Medicine is to be

"Veni, vidi, vici — examinatione cinchibus," 
quoth J. Caesar, as he picked up a copy of Old 
Maryland, after a quiet tete-a-tete with Prof. 
Quiz. Thereupon, all the studes and near studes 
crowded about, beseeching him who gave fame to 
Cleopatra, as to what the questions were. Like 
Caesar, in a few weeks we will be able to say 
the veni, vidi part, but what the next word will 
be I know not. I dare not surmise, yet I pray for 
vici. And with the aid of the wet towel — a use 
perhaps Dr. Gichner might discountenance —

life or death to our hopes is at hand — for he said 
'twould be useless if we had not studied before. 
It may be, yet "it's never too late to learn" and 
the fellow who said that must have been a medi-

The action of Washington College in opening 
its doors free to Maryland boys is in accordance 
with the spirit of the times. The sentiment is in 
favor of popularizing all academic education, 
of extending its privileges as widely as the public 
is capable of receiving it. In many of the States, 
especially in the West, the Universities are free. 
We see no reason why it should not be so in 
Maryland, why all grades of public instruction, 
from the highest to the lowest, should not stand 
upon the same footing. Of course free access 
to the colleges means state support. We are 
rapidly coming to that. Dr. Fell's idea of a 
State University, embracing the various educa- 
tional institutions throughout the State, is grow- 
ing in favor. We need a systematization of our 
educational system, of State bounty. This mat- 
ter should be placed in the hands of a competent 
board. State Comptroller Harrington strongly 
urges the consolidation of all the schools into a 
big State University, liberally supported by the 
State. It will pay to educate our citizens.

A year or two ago we published some stirring 
words from the President of Cornell University 
about freedom of thought and speech in univer- 
sities. The attempt to chain down the human 
mind and make it run in certain grooves will 
ever prove disastrous. It is absurd to suppose 
that knowledge is complete in any direction or 
that there is any field which is not the legitimate 
subject of investigation by human reason. Man's 
reason must be the ultimate judge of all knowl- 
edge, of all experience ; we cannot conceive that 
it could be conferred upon him without the right 
to use it. The following is the declaration of 
the University of Wisconsin upon this subject 
and illustrates the advanced attitude of the world 
to it: 

"We cannot for a moment believe that knowl- 
edge has reached its final goal or that the present 
constitution of society is perfect. Li all lines of 
investigation the investigator should be absolutely 
free to follow the paths of truth wherever they 
may lead. Whatever may be the limitations 
which trammel inquiry elsewhere we believe the 
great State of Wisconsin should ever encourage 
that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing 
by which alone the truth can be found."

The idea that there can be unendowed univer- 
sities and colleges has passed away with the rapid 
progress of events and it seems strange that sen- 
sible men should have held it so recently. No 
institution can maintain a respectable standing 
vi^ithout endowment and dependence upon stu- 
dents' fees means early dissolution. With an in- 
come of over two and a half million dollars, Har- 
vard University had a deficit last year of $16,000 ; 
only one-fourth of its income came from stu- 
dents.. Other institutions may be run upon a 
more economical basis, but these figures are 
startling. We must remember, too, that the 
standard is rising and becoming more uniform 
every year, and with this rise of standard there 
will be increase of need. Truly there is necessity 
to bestir ourselves ! 

At the' recent annual meeting of the Medical 
and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland, hpld in 
Baltimore, April 22-31, the following University 
of Maryland men were elected to office: Presi- 
dent, Dr. R. Winslow, '73; Vice-Presidents, C. 
R. Winterson, '71, A. L. Franklin, '02, and Gor- 
don Wilson ; Delegate to Am. Med. Asso., G. 
Lane Taneyhill, '65 ; Member State Board of 
Medical Examiners, A. L. Wilkinson, '03. 

Owing to continued ill-health. Dr. Marshall L. 
Price tendered his resignation as . Secretary of 
the State Board of Health in January, 1913. It 
was regretfully accepted at the regular monthly 
meeting held January 16. Dr. John S. Fulton, 
who had been Dr. Price's predecessor in office, 
was unanimously elected at the same meeting to 
fill the vacancy. For nearly seven years Dr. 
Price performed the duties of his office with great 
credit to himself and lasting benefit to the people 
of the State of Maryland. Besides his studies 
in tuberculosis, which are quoted. throughout the 
length and breadth of the land, he succeeded in 
bringing about a number of important reforms, 
systematizing the work of the Board and enlarg- 
ing its sphere of usefulness. Among these inno- 
vations may be mentioned the passage of the pure 
food and drug law of Maryland, the organization 
of the Board into bureaus, the daily report of 
infectious diseases and the publication of the 
Health Officers Bulletin. Rohrer, Md. Med. 
Jour., May. 



Thirty-five years ago the Philadelphia County 
Medical Society started a fund for the rehef of 
destitute physicians and their families. The work 
done is made known through annual reports. 
Last June there were over $36,000 in hand and 
the amount this June will probably be over $40,- 
000. The fund is a permanent one, the interest 
alone being available. The late Dr. Roland G. 
Curtin, who was President of the Aid Associa- 
tion, was deeply interested in founding also a 
Home in connection therewith. A movement had 
been started in that direction by -the New York 
Physicians' Mutual Aid Association and he knew 
of a number of old physicians in Philadelphia 
who were in Homes for the aged, some of whom 
had been helped to get in by his Association. 
"Some of the greatest and most successful chari- 
ties in the world," he urged, "have been started 
in a small way." Unfortunately, Dr. Curtin's 
death put a stop to his aspirations, but it is not 
unlikely some other Philadelphia physician will 
be found to take up the great work and follow 
in the footsteps of Baltimore. 

The students' year-book, "Terra Mariae," is 
out and will receive due notice. It is a very 
creditable volume and is under the editorial 
charge of E. G. Breeding, Med., '13, and his as- 
sociates. It represents four of the five depart- 
ments of the University, St. John's, the depart- 
ment of arts and sciences, having its own year- 
book, "Rat-Tat." 

The new President of Washington and Lee 
University, Dr. Henry Louis Smith — a brother 
of Professor Alonzo Smith, of the University 
of \'a., who delivered such a striking address 
on Poe here at the Academic Day Celebration in 
November, 1911, — was installed on May 7. He 
spoke of the function of the American College of 
the 20th Century. Among other things he said — 
"Let the American College answer the call of the 
new century and take as her mission the training 
of leaders in the realm of American citizenship. 
Let her typical graduate be the ideal American 
citizen, trained not only to know — which is 
scholarship, and to appreciate — which is culture, 
but also to be and to do — which is manhood ; of 
\irile and vigorous mind as of vore, but the virile 
and vigorous body as well : energetic, resourceful, 
high-minded, sympathetic, able to manage himself 

and other men, with a passion for righteousness 
and self-sacrificing devotion to the public wel- 
fare. To accomplish this task, the college must 
recognize as her ofiiicial province, not the disem- 
bodied intellect alone, but the whole man, social, 
moral, spiritual , physical ; not the class-room 
hours alone, but the other nine-tenths of the stu- 
dent's time ; not his text-books only, but his com- 
panions and associations." 

The most important feature of the Commence- 
nient, which will be held at the Lyric Theatre, 
on the afternoon of May, 31, will be the formal 
installation of the new Provost. Judge Henry 
Stockbridge, who acted as Provost after the 
death of Mr. Bernard Carter, will preside and 
make the announcement. Mr. Philemon H. Tuck, 
of the Board of Regents, will deliver the con- 
gratulatory address and Governor Goldsborough 
will address the graduating classes. 

The annual reunion of graduates and alumni 
will take place on the evening of May 30, at 
Osier Hall, 1211 Cathedral St., under the auspices 
of the General Alumni Association. The speak- 
ers will be the Provost of the University, Dr. 
Thomas Fell, and Rev. Dr. John Roach Straton. 
Mr. Leroy Oldham will give some of his inimita- 
ble recitations in the negro dialect. A collation 
will be served. Send $1 to N .Winslow, Cor. 
Sec, and get a card of admission. 

The American Medical Association will hold 
its annual meeting at Minneapolis, June 17-20. 
Dr. Hiram Woods, '82, is Chairman of the Sec- 
tion on Ophthalmology. Among those who will 
read papers are Surg. Genl. Rupert Blue, '92, 
U. S. Pub. Health Service, "Public Health As- 
pects of Leprosy in the U. S." ; Charles H. Mayo, 
'09, "Surgery of the Thyroid: Observation on 
o.OOO Operations" : Wm. J. Mayo, '07, "Cancer of 
the Stomach"; Henry D. Fry, '76, "What is 
the proper place for Abdominal Caesarian Sec- 
tion in the Treatment of Placenta Praevia?"

which caused a Typhoid Outbreak" ; Nelson T.

"We all recognize the need of an adequate 
endowment fund in order to perpetuate our work 
in this wonderful twentieth century of progress, 
and here again you will find an ample field for 
your ministrations. Second only to the need of 
money is the need of greater publicity. This is 
the advertising age. Banks, those staid and dig- 
nified institutions, which a few years ago would 
have scorned to use the papers for such purposes, 
now tell the public through the press day by 
day of their superior facilities for service. Our 
churches occupy two or more pages on Saturday, 
not to tell the people primarily of the value of the 
gospel teaching from the pulpit point of view, 
but of the fine music, both vocal and instru- 
mental, wonderful moving pictures, historical or 
poetical lectures, etc., and too often give the the- 
atrical or circus advice — 'Come early and avoid 
the rush.' " Dr. B. Merrill Hopkinson, at the 
Reception. Hospital Bulletin. 


"If any one can organize the somewhat hetero- 
geneous body of instructors of the University 
into one homogeneous whole, it is Dr. Fell. I 
think he will do it. It is a great task to get the 
doctors, the lawyers, the pharmacists and the 
dentists or stomatologists to believe that they 
are all one body working with one great com- 
mon aim and purpose — the unification and up- 
building of the University into one great insti- 
tution or body; but to make this University do its 
most efl^ective work and keep pace with the pres- 
ent day requirements, it must be done. * * The 
separate faculties may not realize the necessity 
of having one directing head, but it is most es- 
sential at this time. How can a corporation or 
institution of any kind be successfully managed 
by a half dozen heads? Asking the question 
gives its own answer. * * A Swede had 
grown rich, and wanted a picture of his father 
but had no photograph, and his father was dead 
when the artist did the work. The Swede, after 
looking on the finished product, said, it is 'Vater,' 
but 'mine Gott, Vater, how you have changed !' 
So will the men of the University say in the 
years to come under the new provost." Judge 
Dav/kins, at the Reception. Hospital Bulletin.

The "grinds" have come into their own again. 
Examination time is here again. The man who 
can work all day and study all night is better 
in the minds of the law student than he who can 
conquer the world. 

To the senior this examination is of supreme 
moment. It means much to him. It is a ques- 
tion whether or not he receives his diploma. 
There is not possibility for him to take the failed 



subject over again next year. He must pass it 
now. Few people realize how pleasant is this 
feeling until they are up against it, and we are 
all up against it. 

Judge Rose has just begun his all night quizzes 
and the electric bill is increasing. We have 
figured out that the men who are able to stick 
out a majority of Judge Rose's quizzes ought to 
pass as well as be able to sit through a murder 
trial, even if they are the accused. 

In connection with the quizzes many humorous 
instances have occurred. We might tell a few 
of these but it might not be the most charitable 
thing to do so we restrain ourselves. It is a safe 
bet, however, that one well known, well liked and 
perhaps the heftiest man in our class will look 
up, read, mark and digest the legal meaning of 
"equitable waste" and "unjust enrichment." 

The Cotillion Club of St. John's have most 
courteously invited the graduating class of the 
Law School to attend their May Dance, which 
will be held in their Gymnasium on May 23d. 
The Senior class, at a meeting, instructed their 
Secretary to thank the St. John's boys for their 
invitation and express the hope that we would be 
able to attend. 

Mr. Moss, one of our Seniors, has just been 
appointed Adjutant on the staff of the Com- 
mander of the First Battalion of the First Md. 
Regiment. Mr. Moss was a St. John's student 
before entering the U. of M. With this record 
back of him there ought to be nothing in the way 
of military tactics for him to learn. 

The Law Department seems to be well repre- 
sented in the Terra Mariae, which is now on 
sale. This publication certainly looks good and 
too much credit cannot be given to the Editors 
for their work in getting it together. Mr. Bailey 
was the Editor from the Law Department.

(By a Lady.) 

Although I was only nine years old when 
the V\'a.v ended, I have a very vivid recollection 
of Richmond during the great conflict. My 
father was a physician and our home was in 
Smithfield, Isle of Wight County, Virginia, 
on the south side of the James River, some 
thirty miles above Norfolk. When the Federal 
troops occupied that section, our family went 
to Milton, N. C, where for some months we 
occupied the Academy building. During the 
winter of 1861-62 we moved to Richmond, my 
father being at the time surgeon in charge of 
the Louisiana Hospital there. 

Our residence was on Franklin St., next to 
that of General Lee. I saw a great deal of 
the General and the members of his family, 
with whom we were very intimate. The Gen- 
eral was very fond of children and the}' were 
equally so of him. We were always on the 
lookout for him, when he came home to visit 
his family. As soon as we spied him coming 
up the street, we ran to meet him, seizing him 
by the hand, the coat, around the neck, any 
part of him we could catch hold of and escort- 
ing him to his door. On such occasions he 
did not thrust us off, although Mrs. Lee would 
very properly say — "Now, children, run away, 
the General is tired ; he has been fighting the 

battles of his country and he needs rest." The 
General would reply, "Oh ! let the dear little 
children stay a while," and he would sit on the 
porch while we climbed all around and upon 
him, begging for locks of hair and buttons for 
our "memor}' strings." I had such a memory 
string over three yards long, containing but- 
tons of all the prominent Confederate officers. I 
lost this interesting relic in a railroad wreck 
when we came to Baltimore after the war. I have 
often sat on the General's knee and kissed him 
many times. He was a fine looking man, very 
gentle and kind but rather grave. He some- 
times rode in from camp on horseback and 
he often looked tired and his clothes were dusty 
and faded. 

I saw President Jefferson Davis daily, as we 
played in Capitol Square opposite his resi- 
dence. He was also fond of children and al- 
ways stopped and spoke to us and patted us 
on the head. I only remember seeing Jackson 
once alive. He was coming from the direction 
of the President's house and was on horseback 
accompanied by a number of officers. He 
struck me as a fine looking" man. I also met 
Generals George Pickett and Charles W. Field, 
both of whom were guests of ours. Dr. Yel- 
"s^erton Garrett, physician to the President, was 
a frequent, almost daily, visitor to our house, 
ha^'ing been a warm friend of my father. 

We attended St. Paul's Protestant Episco- 
pal Church, where we had a pew just behind 
the President. It was the leading church in 
the citjr and was attended by the most promi- 
nent people, both residents and visitors. Dear 
old Dr. Minnegerode was the rector and was 
beloved by everybody. He had a strong Ger- 
man accent and used to say: "I marry dese 
man to dese woman" and "Bredren, led us lif 
in peas and hominy." 

One of the great social events at St. Paul's 
was the marriage of General Pegram to the 
great A^irginia belle. Miss Hettie Cary. She 
was magnificently gowned in white satin. No 
one could imagine how she had procured a

white satin dress, but she wore it and also a 
long" tulle veil. The General was in full uni- 
form. It was a sensational affair. When the 
bride got half way up the aisle she dropped 
her handkerchief and stopped until the bride- 
groom discovered her loss and handed it to 
her. She then proceeded to the chancel rail. 
Again when the time came to produce the ring, 
it was found that the best man had left it at his 
room and the ceremony had to be delayed until 
it could be gotten. 

I was in the church on that historic Sunday 
when a messenger came in and touched Mr. 
Davis on the shoulder, whispering something 
to him. He arose immediatel}' and went out. 
Ever_vone knew that something serious had 
happened and man}^ of the congregation left 
the church, ourselves included. Next day Rich- 
mond was evacuated. 

We had already had intimations of what was 
about to happen although few were willing 
to believe that such a catastrophe was possi- 
ble. Yet there were some who realized the con- 
dition of things and were wise enough to pro- 
vide for it by turning their Confederate money 
into provisions and goods at fabulous prices. 
My mother was one of these wise virgins. She 
was "put wise" by General Duff Green, who 
was an intimate friend and confident of Mr. 
Davis. He told her that she had better turn 
her money into goods or gold, as the fall of the 
city was only a few days off. She took his ad- 
vice and, carrying a market basket full of 
Confederate money down town to the whole- 
sale groceries, she purchased flour, coffee, tea, 
molasses, soap, meal, black-eyed peas, her- 
rings, candles, sugar, and ham. She paid 
$1,500 a barrel for flour and $1 apiece for can- 
dles. She thus filled her storeroom and pantry 
and was able to supply not only her own 
household but her mother and several of her 
sisters, who had not taken her advice and con- 
sequently had absolutely nothing to eat. 

I often visited the hospital with my father 
and took delicacies to the sick and wounded 
soldiers. He would put me on the bed by the 
soldiers and give me a switch to keep the flies 
off them. They loved to have me come to see 
them because, as they said, they had little 
children of their own and I reminded them of 

My mother was a most devoted Southerner 
and almost turned her house into a hospital. 
She was a woman of very tender heart and 
generous nature and a born nurse. There was 
nothing that she would not do, nothing that 
she had that was too good, for a Confederate 
soldier. She, my sister and myself gave up 
our beds and slept upon a mattress in the par- 
lor. There were at one time 14 sick and 
wounded soldiers in our house, and as fast as 
an}' left or died, others were brought in from 
the hospital by Dr. Garnett. None were ever 
turned away — all were warmly welcomed and 
hospitably entertained. One of the wounded 
was Captain Boiling, a Virginian, who was 
shot just above the knee. His leg was am- 
putated by Dr. Garnett and he died of pyemia. 
On his entreaty, my mother stayed by him 
during the operation, although she fainted at 
the sight of it. The limb was buried with his 
body as he had requested. Another of the 
wounded was Captain Bowie, of Maryland. 
He was brought from the hospital suffering 
with pyemia and was covered with abscesses, 
as many as 32 at one time. My mother bathed 
and syringed them faithfully, although they 
were excessively offensive. He was sick for 
many weeks and finally died. These were the 
only deaths that occurred among the soldiers at 
our house. We had other cases of typhoid 
fever, dj'sentery, etc., and all received the ut- 
most care and kindness from tis all. It was 
my duty to sit and keep the flies off' them and 
give them water, crushed ice, etc. Captains 
Bowie and Boiling left rings and locks of hair 
for relatives which my mother delivered after 
the war. 

My father was a large land and slave-owner, 
possessing five plantations and 250 slaves. All 
were swept away by the war and by a dis- 
honest executor. He was a kind and indulgent 
master, looking closely after the health and 
morals of his slaves. When one was married, 
it was always done in our parlor and there 
were always a wedding cake and presents. He 
never would trade or sell them. And so, they 
were devoted to him and absolutely trust- 
worthy. W^hen he had to leave home in 1861, 
the farms and our home in Smithfield were 
left in their care. They were carefulh' trained 
as mechanics, cooks, house servants, etc., and 



were always in demand. Each family had its 
cabin, garden, pigs and fowls, etc., and there 
were rewards for good conduct and industr}- 
at the end of the year. With such help, farm- 
ing and housekeeping were easy. Our pantry 
and smoke house were always full and our table 
groaned with every dish and delicacy known 
to the A'irginia housekeeper. We entertained 
lavishly. We were always ready for guests 
and it was a common occurrence for m_v father 
to bring in to dinner a group of his friends 
unannounced, even twenty at a time when Court 
was in session. 

Isaac was mv father's coachman, his con- 
stant and trusted body-servant. A\'henever 
he was away, to Isaac was entrusted the care 
of the famih', the responsibility for wife and 
children. Armed with a brace of pistols, he 
slept in front of my mother's door. Both 
Isaac and Mammy refused their freedom when 
offered to them, preferring to remain in sla- 
very under this beloved and kindly master. 
When my father died he left all his clothing to 

x'Vbout 35 of our servants accompanied us to 
Richmond. Those who were not needed begged 
not to be left, being in great fear of the Yankees, 
who had treated them roughly on account of 
their faithfulness to us. They became really a 
great burden to my mother, who was in no 
condition to bear the expense of them, having 
lost everything. They clung to us until we left 
Richmond for Baltimore in lS(i(), when positions 
for them were secured among our friends. 

My Mammy, whose name was Lydia, was tall 
and slender. She always wore a black dress 
and a large white apron, with a bandana hand- 
kerchief around her head and a white hand- 
kerchief crossed over her breast. Her aprons 
and kerchiefs were beautifully laundered and 

She was devoted to me and called me her 
"baby." Her sympathies were with the South 
and she was as much interested in caring for 
the sick and wounded Confederates as we were. 
I visited Richmond about four years after the 
war. and this dear old creature gave me a lunch- 
eon at her house, to which all of my relations 
were invited. The appointments were all first 
class as she had borrowed from different mem- 
bers of the family everything necessary to make 

the table complete. It was covered with •& 
damask cloth and upon this was spread the 
most sumptuous repast in true Southern style — 
fried chicken, waffles, beaten biscuits, croquets, 
pickles, salad and coffee. For desert we had 
ice cream and home-made cake. She was an 
excellent cook, indeed she was gifted in every- 
thing. During the repast she stood behind my 
chair and waited upon me herself. There were 
about fifteen of us seated at the table. The 
whole time I was in Richmond she insisted on 
doing my washing and ironing and would let 
no one touch my clothes but herself, and when 
she brought them in they were as white as snow. 
When I went to the boat to leave for Balti- 
more, she was there with a basket filled with 
a delicious lunch. 

Like all such persons, Mammy was addicted 
to the use of long and incongruous words, which 
were very amusing. I wish I could reproduce 
some of her curious sayings, but they have 
escaped me. I remember that she called perspi- 
ration "buzbilation." I caught up many of her 
expressions and used to astonish the Baltimore 
people when I came here with my eccentricities 
of speech. 

The death of Stonwall Jackson was a great 
IjIow to the people of Richmond, as of the whole 
South. When the news arrived nearly every- 
one was in tears and one could hear sobs all 
around, so that it might have been supposed 
by a stranger that all had lost near relatives. 
Many thought that our cause was lost. The 
starvation parties and dancing, in fact all 
gaiety ceased. The body vvas brought to the 
capitol and lay there in state. Everybody went 
to see it. I was not tall enough to look into 
the coffin, but General Duff Green held me up 
so that I could see the face of our idolized hero. 
It looked' thin but perfectly natural, as I remem- 
ber it. (To be continued.) 

Provost Thomas Fell will leave for his west- 
ern trip to the University of Wisconsin, on the 
20th instant, and will return to Baltimore on 
the 2(ith.

There will be a baseball game for the benefit 
of the Home for Widoivs and Orphans of Phy- 
sicians at Oriole Park, on Thursday afternoon, 
May 22, at 4 o'clock. The contest will be be- 
tween the doctors and preachers. The teams 
will be largely composed of the same persons 
who played at Mt. Washington last year, when 
the preachers carried off the honor by 13 to G. 
They declare that they will repeat the perform- 
ance, but the doctors are determined upon re- 
\-enge. The following doctors will take part : 
J. M. T. Finney, A. C. Harrison, George 
Whipple, Frank Martin, Robert P. Bay, Win- 
ford B. Smith, G. M. Linthicum, J. M. H. Row- 
land, C. A. Penrose, R. L. Mitchell, G. M. Set-

of this team. The preachers' team will be 
published later and will consist of the best theo- 
logical talent. No one will be solicited to buy 
tickets, which will be for sale at the gate and 
at prominent places in the city. There will 
also be a game at 2 P. M., at the same place, 
between two good amateur teams to be selected. 
Admission to both games 25 cents. Come and 
h.elp a good cause. 

At the commencement on May 31st, honorary 
degrees will be conferred upon three persons, 
that of LL.D. upon Governor Phillips Lee Golds- 
boro, of Maryland, and former Governor Ed- 
win Warfield, and that of D. Sc. upon Profes- 
sor John C. Hemmeter. 

The next (June) number of Old Maryland 
will be the commencement number and will con- 
tain all matters of interest pertaining to the 
close of the session. Those students and others 
wishing a copy of this issue can have the same 
sent to them by leaving 10 cents and name and

June, 1913. 


The Commencement was held at the Lyric 
Theatre, at 4 P. M., May 31. The exercises 
began with prayer by the Rt. Rev. John Gardner 
Murray, D. D., Bishop of Maryland. The instal- 
lation of the new Provost, Thomas Fell, Ph. D., 
LL.D., D.C.L., President of St. .John's Col- 
lege, followed. Judge Henry Stockbridge, the 
acting Provost since the death of the previous 
occupant of that office — Mr. Bernard Carter — 
announced the election of Dr. Fell by the Re- 
gents, and the conversion of the position into 
a salaried office with the usual duties and auth- 
ority attached to the office. 

Dr. Fell was presented by Mr. Philemon H. 
Tuck, of the Board of Regents, with a sketch of 
his career, a eulogy of his achievements as Pres- 
ident of St. John's and a description of his 
qualifications for the office. The new Provost 
then read his inaugural address. 

Following this came the address to the Grad- 
uates by his Excellency, Governor Phillips Lee 
Goldsborough, in which a State University em- 
bracing the various colleges of Maryland was 
advocated, under State control and assisted by 
State appropriations, the Western idea of the 
State University being taken as a model. 

The aegrees were conferred by the Provost 
upon the graduates of the various departments 
in succession, the Governor handing out the 
diplomas to their recipients, as they filed past 
him on the stage. 

Next came the honorary degrees, of LL.D., 
conferred upon Governor Gold.sborough and up- 
on former Governor Edwin Warfield, and of 
D. Sc, conferred upon Professor John C. Hem- 
meter. Governor Goldsborough was presented 
by Judge James P. Gorter, Mr. AVarfield, by 
Judge John C. Rose and Professor Hemmeter, 
by Professor D. M. R. Culbreth. 

The distribution of Prizes and the benedic- 
tion by the Bishop concluded the ceremonies of 
the day, a day of note in the annals of the 
institution. The St. John's prizemen will re- 
ceive their honors at the special commencement 
of that department to be held at Annapolis on 
June IS. Those of the Department of Medicine 
were University Prize (Gold Medal), Dr. Jesus 
Maria Buch Portuondo, of Santiago, Cuba ; Cer- 
tificates of Honor, Drs. Hamilton J. Slusher, 
Va., Claudius Abijah Hayworth, N. C, Charles 
Reid Edwards, Md., W. Frank Gemmill, Pa., 
and Nathaniel Jay Gould, Va. Li the Depart- 
ment of Law, Mr. Lewin Claude Bailey, of 
Ouantico, Md., an A.B. graduate of St. John's, 
'11, received the $100 prize for scholarship, Mr.' 
Ernest Ray Jones, of Deer Park, Md., coming 
second and winning an encyclopedia in 12 vol- 
umes ; Mr. Edward Duffield Martin, of Balti- 
more, won the thesis prize of $100, Mr. Jones 
receiving honorable mention. In the Depart- 
ment of Dentistry, the University Prize (Gold 
Medal) was awarded to Dr. Arthur Louis 
Strenge, of Mass., with honorable mention to 
Dr. LeRoy David Brown, Fla. The other dis- 
tinctions in this Department are given in the De- 
partment notes. The Gold Medal for General 
Excellence in the Department of Pharmacy was 
gained by Dr. B. Olive Cole, of Md., with 
Certificates of Honor in order of merit to Drs. 
James William Watkins, of W. Va., and Thomas 
Andrew Crowell, of N. C. A special prize for 
superior work in Chemistry ("Simon Medal") 
was won by Thomas Andrew Crowell, of N. C. 


( ) Almighty and Eternal God, Heavenly 
Father, we bow in thy presence, recognizing thy 
supreme authority over us and acknowledging 



our direct dependence upon thee. 

We are not only the creatures of thy hand, 
but also the children of thy love, and we praise 
thee for the glory of our heritage. 

In the use of the many blessings thou hast 
bestowed upon us, we would discharge faith- 
fully and well all the obligations growing out of 
our relationship to thee and to each other ; and 
we pray that to this end thou wilt direct us in 
all our doings with thy most gracious favor and 
further us with thy continual help that in all 
our work begun, continued and ended in thee, 
we may glorify thy holy Name and profitably 
serve our fellowmen. 

We pray thy blessing upon our country, our 
commonwealth and our community. Be with 
all in authority over us in legislative, executive 
and judicial affairs, and may their every duty 
be discharged in thy fear and wisdom. 

May the grace of thy knowledge prevail in 
the schools and colleges of our land. Direct and 
guide those who administer gt)vernment and 
discipline there, and instil obedience and dili-

Wilt thou look with special favor this day 
upon the affairs of the University of Maryland. 
We thank thee for the good this Institution has 
done and continues to do ; and pray thee for an 
increased continuance of the same. To this end 
wilt thou take under thy immediate personal 
direction thy servant whose installation as gov-

to accomplish. May he not onlv by thy wisdom 
have grace to perceive and know the things he 
ought to do, but by thy strength also have power 
successfully to fulfill the same.

than for those who go out from their places to- 
day to the love and labor of the active duties of 
life. May each and every one be a contributor 
to the supreme worth of the world's work both 
for time and eternity. 

And as for these, so for us all. Oh thou Omni-

The year which today brings to a close has 
been an eventful one in the history of this Uni- 
versity. Scarcely had the doors closed upon 
our last Academic year when we were called 
on to mourn the loss of one who for many years, 
with honor to himself and profit to this Insti- 
tution, had filled the high place of its Provost. 
The life of Bernard Carter, his interest in and 
labors on behalf of this University, need no 
word at this time from me. A fitting 
tribute, far more eloquent than any which I 
could pronounce, was paid to him and his mem- 
ory at the exercises on our last Academic Day. 
Not long after his death the Regents of this 
LTniversity addressed themselves to the respon- 
sible and delicate task of the selection of his 
successor. A Committee was appointed which 
for a number of months carefully considered the 
matter in all of its various aspects, and their 
labors culminated in the selection of one whom 
it will be my pleasure in a few moments to 
present you. 

In the making of the selection there was more 
to be considered than the mere matter of the 
choice of an individual. For some time senti- 
ment has been crystallizing in the direction, that 
the great need of the University was that the 
position of its Provost should be something more 
than one of dignity and honor, that such officer 
should by his personal attention, closely super- 
vise the executive administration of the various 
departments, thereby infusing in each not mere- 
Iv a harmonious operation, but a bringing of the 
departments into closer touch, creating that mu- 
tual interdependence whereby each should be- 
come an aid to all the others. 

That this has been accomplished in the selec- 
tion made is the hope and belief of the members 
of the Board of Regents, and they feel that the 



events which have taken place during the year 
amply justify this confidence. Already one of 
the Medical Schools of this City, heretofore in- 
dependent, has been consolidated with the Med- 
ical Department of this University, and that 
union will be an accomplished fact in every re- 
spect when the doors of the University open in 
the Fall, ^^'hile not at liberty at this time to 
use any names, I may be permitted to say, that 
still other consolidations have been discussed, 
and while it will not yet do to say that they 
are probable, they are certainly within the range 
of the possibilities of the near future. 

I now have great pleasure in presenting to this 
audience, Dr. Thomas Fell, the Provost elect 
of the University of Maryland. 


Reverently, and yet enthusiastically, I accept 
the office to which you have called me. 

It is an office of great honor and dignity; also 
one of great responsibility, and I pledge myself 
to do my utmost to faithfully fulfill the duties 
of the position. 

I need not dwell upon the grandeur and no- 
bility of mind of those who have preceded me 
in this office for this has been well done on pre- 


Dear Doctor — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly inves- 
tigate New York pharmacies and certify to the worth of 
those that meet reasonable modern requirements in stock, 
in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifica- 
tion. The character of work we have been doing for more 
than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly and firmly 
established us in your esteem and favorably testifies as to 
our abilities and methods.

room supplies, invalid's appliances and household drugs 
and chemicals; surgical instruments and physician's sup-

vious occasions, nor need I emphasize the record 
of achievements by the University in the past. 
To what she has already done for Maryland, her 
sons now with us can amply testify. 

This year commemorates the centennial of the 
opening of the University in Baltimore but for 
two hundred and twenty-five years the torch of 
learning has been kept alive by the sons of Mary- 
land, — founders, progenitors and alumni of this 
great L'niversity. 

Hither have come the sons of other States, 
as well, each to light his taper at the sacred 
flame, and in the hands of many a one his taper's 
slender flame has beamed ever more and more 
steadily and brightly, until it has reached far 
beyond the confines of the State, even beyond 
the limits of the Country. 

But at the present time there is needed in 
Maryland a more systematic adjustment of 
primary, secondary and higher education to meet 
the needs of the people of the State. 

In an address recently made by President 
Lowell in this City he referred to the necessity 
of getting youths to enter college at an earlier 
age than now prevails. 

Within the past quarter of a century profes- 
sional courses in the United States have been 
lengthened by a full year. 

Within the same period the Preparatory or 
High School has been forced by additions to the 
requirements for entrance to College to add at 
least a year to its course of study. 

Meanwhile the four years' term for the college 
course of study remains unabridged, and the 
result is that the average young man cannot so 
much as enter the practice of his profession 
before the age of twenty-five or twenty-six years. 
It is only by means of a closer relation between 
the College and the Professional School that a 
solution of the difficulty can be brought about, 
which can assure to the graduate an unquestioned 
standing in the world of scholarship. 

The modern world has been recently touched 
and transformed by the spirit of Democracy. 
A new test is now applied for the worth of 
life, the test of service. A man must be not 
only good but good for something. Precisely 
the same test must be applied to education. How 
much is it worth? Many a man to-day thinks 
himself educated when, in reality, he is a mere 



survivor of a prehistoric type among the needs 
of the modern world. 

Education should lead forth the mind to an 
acquaintance with three things : acts, facts and 
the relation of these to each other. It is the 
last of these that it is most difficult to master. 

The greatest lessons man has to learn are not 
those of grammar and mathematics, of modern 
or ancient science, except as these all help to 
make him know himself and his relation to the 
whole circle of the universe. 

A University should study and learn the needs 
of the State which it serves, and it should be not 
only an intellectual, but a social power in the 
community — it should wish and strive for the 
general betterment and uplift of the people. 

We must see that the child is given the general 
training of a modern being by enlightening our 

Men and women are to be fitted for some 
worthy vocation in life. Agriculture and the co- 
ordinate industries of distribution and commerce 
must naturally be our chief material concern. 
Farming should be made a profession with a 
scientific basis laid even in the grade school. The 
care of women that they should be given proper 
educational opportunities and that their lives 
especially in the country, be made brighter and 
more spacious is in the heart of our ideal. 

The realization of the community of interest 
between the farmer who produces and the busi- 
ness man who distributes the food, provides 
banking and transportation and sends in the 
manufactured supplies must be impressed upon 
every mind. 

And so there are several very distinct types 
of learning ofifered to our American youth. 

There is a kind of education that seeks to meet 
the vague requirements of mere respectability. 

There is the vocational type which fits for the 
ordinary life. 

There is the so called business man's course 
thought to be sufficient for young men who wish 
to prepare for the routine of commerce and 
trade. ' ' ' T^ 


Baltimore and Greene Streets. 



There is the professional school where such 
knowledge and learning as are necessary for 
him who proposes to devote himself to one of 
the learned professions may be had. 

There is the learning of the specialist who 
selects one restricted field and makes himself an 
expert or master in that limited range of know- 

And here, in Baltimore, with its libraries, its 
museums, its location as the natural gateway to 
the Atlantic from the West and from the At- 
lantic to the West, is there not opportunity for 
a vast expansion upon the lines marked out? 

What is the picture of an effective, modern 
life? Is it not the picture of a river flowing 
through a thirsty plain? Up in the hills in the 
simple school house where the stream first rises 
is the task of education, the Cjuiet fidelity of the 
teacher's work. 

Then, as the stream goes flowing on to the 
plain below, the fertilizing power advances until 
it has made the desert to blossom as a rose. 

To give the spring to the river, the water to 
the world, the school to the State, that is th ■ 
task which confronts us here. 

These schools and colleges, established in 
colonial time, pursuing the even tenor of their 
way through years of quiet work, often through 
periods of dark discouragement and care, yet 
often illumined by brilliant flashes of the light 
that was steadily waxing stronger and stronger, 
ever progressing toward the full glow of mid- 
day — do they not appeal to all that is generous 
and noble within us? Shall we suffer tlicm to 
languish for want of necessary means to carry 
on their work? 

To secure the good will of our neighbor must 
not be our only aim. In turn we must do our 
part to promote closer relation with the primary 
school of the State, that by means of a perfected 
and rounded system of general education, the 
whole mass of the people may be thrilled and 
uplifted, until every vocation in life shall have 
received fresh impulse toward higher standards 
and ideals, for the good of the whole community.

Your Bnnli Account 




We stand to represent the State of Maryland, 
in the field of education and we need to help us 
in our work for the honor of the State, all the 
encouragement and sympathy She can give us. 





MAY 31st. 

The Provost of the University of Maryland, 
the Board of Trustees, the Gentlemen Members 
of the Faculty, Students, Ladies and Gentlemen : 

As we stand here today in the atmosphere of 
higher education, our imagination is moved and 
stimulated to consider what it all means. We 
are hardly content to fold our hands and stand 
agap, afraid to express ourselves for fear we 
should find words madequate, but rather do we 
dare to give expression to the thoughts that sug- 
gest themselves as befitting this occasion. 

What a terrible thing indeed is ignorance. It 
is a source of endless human woes. It drops a 
mystic curtain over facts ; through it v\'e see 
truth obscured and distorted ; it produces a 
gloom and darkness upon the individual life. 
The ignorant are as one blind, standing groping 
helplessly among objects they can never see nor 
understand; lifting high their feet to clear some 
imaginary obstacle and fail to see what is at 
hand, their hearts filled with terror at imaginary 
dangers or those that are miles away, or, like 
ships in some dense fog, ringing bells and toot- 
ing whistles vainly attempting to locate them- 
selves, and passing ships ; always uneasy and 
uncertain as to their whereabouts ; proceeding 
slowly, cautiously, uncertainly and dangerously. 

Indeed an examination of the objects of his- 
tory will disclose the fact that most of the cal- 
amities that visit the earth seem to have been 
produced by ignorance inexplicable. 

How glorious is education ! It is like the lift- 
ing of a fog or mist, enabling us to go ahead at 

"Nothing Too Large— Nothing Too Small"

full speed with the full consciousness of our 
bearings, blowing whistles only in salute, or to 
indicate a right of way. 

If this be so, how great a debt indeed does 
the State owe its citizens to provide for them the 
knowledge necessary to enable them to do the 
work intelligently and efficiently which the State 
exacts of them. We may differ among ourselves 
as to how far this debt may go — whether it 
should confine itself to only primary education 
or even extend itself into secondary education. 
And there are those among us who believe the 
State still owes a duty to provide for those de- 
sirous of a collegiate training, in order that they 
may better perform the broad duty which they 
may in after life assume or have thrust upon 

It may be conceded, and indeed I believe it 
is generally conceded, that in the matter of prim- 
ary education our State ranks among the fore- 
most ; and under the High School Act of 1910, 
we can boast that we are rapidly taking our 
place in secondary education among the fore- 
most States of the Union and other countries 
of the world. But when we speak of collegiate 
education, can it be said that we are doing what 
we should, and in the proper way? It is true 
that we have many handicaps to overcome. In the 
early days of our independent life, when travel 
was more complicated and difficult, the means 
of communication were few and slow. Owing 
to the geographical and topographical character 
of our State, it seemed important to establish 
various schools for higher education in different 
sections or parts of the State, to foster their 
growth and divide the resources of the State de- 
voted to that purpose among three or more inde- 
pendent schools or colleges, thereby more than 
triplicating the resources which were at our dis- 
posal, and so scattering our facilities as to elim- 
inate our effectiveness. 

Some of the newer States have profited by 
the experience of the old. They have had their 
birth and developement in an age of easy and 
ready communication and transportation, and 
have therefore centralized their resources, and 
have been able to accomplish more than we have. 
But that does not mean that we shall not adjust 
ourselves to new conditions ; wipe from the slate 
our losses and start anew. 

It would, indeed, be a glorious enterprise to 
take advantage of the present excellent educa- 



tional facilities of our State and so weld them 
together as to make one great University. It is, 
indeed, an unfortunate condition that of the six 
Colleges of the State only one is listed as a 
College by the Carnegie Foundation, by the Fed- 
eral Bureau of Education, and the standard 
adopted by our own State Board of Education, 
and that one is endowed by private fortune and 
bears the name of its founder. 

It is true that in the past few years one of 
these other Colleges has made great improve- 
ment and is fast advancing to a rank of which 
we may be proud. 

We may divide the work of the University 
into -four distinct classes, or, we might say, only 
two classes ; first, the academic or literary, — sec- 
ond, the professional and vocational. The pro- 
fessional and vocational have divided themselves 
into the pursuit of pure and applied sciences, 
and I may use the term pure and applied agri- 

If we could weld all these purposes together 
in one great management, and lend to it the 
support of the State, would it not be an accom- 
plishment of which we all could be proud? 
Eliminating the appropriations for buildings and 
improvements, the .State of Maryland spends or 
contributes to the support of these Colleges for 
the year 11)1:5 the sum of $260,193. While per- 
haps but comparatively a small sum to what it 
spends on primary and secondary education, it 
would be none the less helpful if devoted to one 
great enterprise under the direction and control 
of the State. This done, and success having 
followed its doing, what an incentive there 
would be for much more generous contributions 
or appropriations to be made by the State to 
this new and enlarged University. 

The people of the State of AVisconsin give two 
millions of dollars per annum to their Univer- 
sity, and they spend $200,000 annually in ex- 
tension work. The State of Wisconsin recog- 
nizes that money thus appropriated to her great 
educational institution comes back to them in a 
manifold manner, when they are brought, as is 
the case, into such close relationship with all of 
the people of her State. The lesson for the east- 



S. W. Cor. Eutaw and Saratoga Sts., Baltimore. Md. 

ern universities and colleges is, said a gentleman 
writing to me the other day, that "The day of 
exclusiveness in the matter of education is past. 
Democracy demands its full share of the benefits, 
if it pays the taxes, and universities must come 
into closer contact with the life of the people." 

When the various so-called colleges petition 
the Legislature for aid, they, no doubt, justify 
their conscience by believing that they do good 
work, but when an institution can go to the 
Legislature and say that it does the best work, 
— comparing favorably with work done in 
the progressive universities of other States — it 
is not a petition when they ask for help, — it be- 
comes a demand upon the State which it is 
bound to honor. 

When I say this, it is not without what I con- 
sider true patriotism. When one boasts that he 
comes from a country greater than others, it 
seems to me that he misses the point, as it im- 
plies dishonor to one who comes from a country 
less magnificent. One loves his State, be it little 
or be it great, for "Be there one with soul so 
dead, who never to himself hath said, this is my 
own, my native land?" 

We do well to study the beauty and achieve- 
ments of sister states; we do better when we try 
to improve through that study our own condi- 

It is not enough to see the errors and the 
faults of the past; it should be our effort and 
our aim to remedy them. We should go care- 
fully, in order to hold fast to that which we have, 
that is good ; we should go vigorously and ener- 
getically in order that the next generation shall 
not miss the fruit of our observation and our 
effort. In paying the debt which we owe, we 
can take but one of two courses : Either our 
efficiency must be doubled, and we produce twice 
as much for the amount expended, or else, we 
must reduce the amount we spend for what we 
can get. Anything else is failure-. It should be 
our endeavor to see where we can find greatness, 
progress and achievement, and struggle to make 
that equipment ours. 

Having such hopes and aims in view, and 
determining so far as it is in my power to ac- 
complish them, it is my purpose at a near day, 
to appoint a Commission of leading business 
men and educators, and more of the former than 
the latter — to study thoroughly and recommend 
a plan for the entire revision of the educational 



system of Maryland to be sent by me to the 
General Assembly of Maryland when it shall 
convene in the year 1914. Progress in educa- 
tional development is needed in Maryland. Let 
us undertake the task, with a determination to 
achieve a broad measure of success. 

Gentlemen of the Graduating Classes of the 
various Departments of the University of Mary- 
land, you I would especially congratulate upon 
having succeeded in completing the courses of 
study provided, and availing yourselves of the 
opportunities given of associating with your fel- 
low students, and the Faculties of your several 

You should be and doubtless are, well 
equipped to take up the responsibilities of life; 
the greatest of which is to serve your fellow- 
men and promote the interests of the community 
with which you will identify yourselves. 

If you keep this firmly in mind, success will 
be achieved. I wish you all a life of broad use- 
fulness and prosperity.

And I, too, am honored by the command of 
the Regents to present to you one whom they 
deem worthy of their honorary degree of Doc- 
tor of the Laws. He whom I am to name is 
of high rank — the highest within this sovereign 
commonwealth of ours. The University of 
Maryland, in common with all good citizens, 
honors and respects the chief magistrate of the 
State. With them it trusts that those who shall 
fill that office shall be worthy of it. The Govern- 
or of Maryland as such needs no decoration other 
than that which he has received from the suf- 
frages of his fellow citizens. He requires no 
title other than the simple and dignified one 
which the tradition of more than two centuries 
has attached to the place he fills — "His Excel- 
lency, the Governor;" nor does this university 
confer its degrees upon officials. It bestows 
them upon men.

The Constitution of our State and the tradi- 
tions of our people make tenures of office but 
episodes, though important ones, in the lives of 
our most distmguished men. The degrees of 
this University are more lasting. The man holds 
them after he has returned into the ranks of his 

Universities outlive countless generations of 
men. Those who are now Regents of this uni- 
versity are the custodians of its fame. They 
will be responsible, so long as it shall last, for 
the wisdom and the discretion which they have 
shown in bestowing its honors. They may not, 
therefore, give a degree to anyone who is not 
in himself worthy of it. 

A doctor is a teacher. When we make one a 
Doctor of Laws, we certify that he is fitted to 
teach the law. 

The lessons in the law which the American 
people most need are that a law which is not 
enforced is worse than useless, and that whether 
a law shall be enforced or not depends in larg- 
est part upon the make-up of the men who in 
high place and in low are entrusted with its 

We believe that he whom I am about to pres- 
ent has graphically taught these lessons. He has 
brought home to all of us how much may be 
done for the public weal by those who faithfully 
and energetically use rightly the powers the law 
has given to them. 

I therefore, on behalf of the Regents of the 
University of Maryland, present to you, Mr. 
Provost, for the degree of Doctor of Laws, one 
who has already taught the laws — Phillips Lee 


Mr. Provost: I have the honor and privilege 
to present for the degree of Doctor of Laws, 
Edwin Warfield.

his native county, studying law while so engaged.

gramme consisted of an address by Dr. Fell, 
' Provost, recitations in the negro dialect by Mr. 
Leroy Oldham and a magnificent illustrated 
lecture on a trip to Egypt, by Rev Dr. John 
Roach Straton of the 7th Baptist Church. This 
lecture was a great treat and was listened to 
throughout with rapt attention, although it was 
quite long. Dr. Straton has a superb voice, 
fine power of description and his pictures were 
truly magnificent. A buflfet lunch was served, 
About 1.50 attended, including Dr. Fell, Mr.

Speaking of his pet project of a State Univer- 
sity, Provost Fell said: "I think it was about 
seven years ago when I had the pleasure of 
traveling down to Ocean City with ex-Governor 
Edwin Warfield. On that occasion we dis- 
cussed together the matter of higher education 
in the State of Maryland and I think it was as 
a result of that conversation that I derived very 
much the inspiration that I now possess." 

Our Associate Editor, Mr. Calvert Magntdcr, 
has carried oiT the highest honors this year at 
St. John's. Mr. E. T. Fell, a son of the Provost, 
comes second. In the oratorical contest at the 
Peace Conference at Lake Mohawk, New York, 
on May loth, to which we have referred, Mr. 
Magruder represented the Eastern States and 
won the second prize of $75. Blanshard, of the 
University of Michigan, took the first prize, $100, 
and Welsh, of Knox College, 111., came third 
with a $50 prize.

ceipt, we regret to have to postpone Mr. Phile- 
mon H, Tuck's address in presenting the Pro- 
vost. But, as we wish to publish it in full, we 
have concluded to reserve it for our next (July)

elected the following year and held this office 
until 1881. 

1. In 1881 he was elected !o the State Sen- 
ate to fill the unexpired term of the late Sena- 
tor Gorman. 

5. In 1883 he was re-elected to the Senate, 
and during the session of 1886 he was chosen 
President of that body. He presided with such 
fairness and impartiality, that no appeal was 
ever taken from his decision. 

6. In 1886, President Cleveland appointed 
him surveyor of the port of Baltimore, which 
office he filled during President Cleveland's ad- 

7. In 1890 he founded the Fidelity Trust and 
Deposit Company of Maryland. He was a pi- 
oneer in this line of work. This Institution may 
be said to have made Baltimore City the centre 
of this character of business — whose growth has 
become world-wide. Not only has it been of 
great commercial value to the people of this 
State, but it has given safety and security to all 
who are dependent upon others for the manage- 
ment of their property and affairs. The physical 
manifestation of the success of this undertaking 
is indicated by the magnificent granite building 
at the corner of Charles and Lexington Streets 
that towers to the sky. 

8. Having placed this enterprise on a safe 
foundation, he again returned to the public ser- 
vice. In 1903 he was elected to the highest of- 
fice within the gift of the people. His admin- 
istration reflected credit and honor alike upon 
himself and the state. In his conduct of that 
office he was guided by the principle enunciated 
by the President from whom he had some years 
before received an appointment — that public of- 
fice is a public trust. He governed for the ben- 
efit of all the people. He was not a man's man, 
he was a "Statesman." 

9. When he retired from the Governorship 
he resumed his work as President of the great 
corporation he had built up, and today is occu- 
pied in managing its affairs. He is associated

cause the University of Maryland feels that your 
useful and honorable life entitles you to it, and 
in bestowing it she is reflecting no less glory 
upon herself than upon you. 


Ladies and Gentlemen: 

It has been an ancient custom for Universities 
on festal days to honor men of learning by the 
bestowal of personal tokens of admiration in 
recognition of their achievements in the field of 
either literature, art, science, medicine, law or 
theology. In conformity with this usage, the 
Regents of the University of Maryland have 
caused a mandate to be issued, directing that on 
this occasion, a degree honoris causa, be con- 
ferred upon one whose name will now be pres- 
ented to the Provost. 

Mr. Provost : I have the honor and prixilege 
to present for the degree of Doctor of Science 
the name of Dr. John Cohn Hemmeter, Profes- 
sor of Physiology in this University. Dr. Hem- 
meter was born in this city just 50 years ago; 
was sent abroad at 10, for 5 years, to master 
languages and the rudiments of science ; entered 
Baltimore City College at 15 ; graduating at 18 ; 
spent a year in the Fresenius Chemical Labora- 
tory, Wiesbaden, Germany ; entered the Medical 
Department of this University at 19, graduating 
at 21 ; became Resident Physician for 3 years at 
Bayview, our largest hospital ; entered Johns 
Hopkins University at 23, graduating at 27 ; ac- 
cepting physiology, biology and chemistry as 
major studies. He has devoted his energies 
since then chiefly to diseases of the stomach and 
intestines and their co-ordinate relationship in 
processes of digestion, with the result of making 
new discoveries in disease and cure, and contri- 
buting more than a hundred technical articles to 
foreign and domestic journals, many finding 
translation into various languages and admission 



into works of eminent authors, who gratefully 
acknowledge his researches, especially on the 
physiological effects of alcohol, digitalis and 
ergot, and the interdependence of gastric juice 
and salivary gland secretions, as most logical 
and conclusive. He has published "Pathology 
and Treatment of Organic Diseases of the Stom- 
ach," 1896; "Diseases of the Stomach," 1897; 
"Diseases of the Intestines," 2 vols., 1901-02 ; 
"Manual of Practical Physiology," 1912; each 
recognized at date of issue as the most compre- 
hensive and important treatise upon its respec- 
tive subject in the English language. He has 
inherited, apart from medical and scientific apt- 
ness, musical inspiration that yields graceful 
piano technique and compositions of commenda- 
ble order. His writings, publications, professional 
attainments, membership and activities in nu- 
merous societies and organizations, at home 
and abroad, have won an international reputa- 
tion that places him among the foremost author- 
ities on this side of the Atlantic. He received 
the honorary degree of LL.D. from St. John's 
College, in 1905 ; was elected member of Imper- 
ial' German Academy of National Sciences in 
1912, and was appointed Professor of Physiolo- 
gy in the University of Maryland in 1901, a 
position he continues to fill with distinction. 

For these very many creditable milestones, it 
gives me great pleasure on behalf of the Regents, 
to present him for the aforesaid degree.

Mr. William H. Scruggs, Sr., has accepted an 
appointment to the State T.B. Hospital at Sabill- 
asville, Md., tendered him by Prof. Gordon 

Kappa Psi, Phi Sigma Kappa and the Nu 
Sigma Nu Fraternities have decided to keep op- 
en house this summer. 

Allbutt's System of Medicine, recommended 
by Prof. Gordon Wilson as the "one best bet," is 
now in the Library. 

Prof. Zueblin, taking advantage of the effects 
examinations have upon metabolism, has been 
conducting experiments on urine obtained from 
the Seniors after each exam. No doubt the re- 
sults of his investigations will be most interest- 

Monday was the night. Behind closed doors, 
the august Faculty were deciding the Fates. 
Outside a mass of students had congregated — as 
silent as the night, but their souls in turmoil, in 
doubt, fearful expectancy. The Seniors sat 
around, this was the time for which they had 
long been waiting — yet perhaps the full meaning 
of that little slip, which but three words, enough 
to spell failure or success, had not come home 
■'till then. For the most part, they were silent, 
heir faces Sphinx-like, interrogatory, thought- 
ful, portraying the feelings of the soul within. 
It was plain that thev were nervous — the smile 
that now and then flitted over their faces was 
a saJ, sad smile. One broke out into song, but 
there came no answering notes, and the voice, 
as if a heart oppressed could not lie, grew weak- 
er and weaker, and in the midst of the line, the 
song was choked. At last the doors were thrown 
open — soon the pages of mvstery were to be 
opened. The Seniors crowded in — together with 
manv of the lower classmen, the latter more out 
of curiositv and to be among the first to wish 
their friends success. The grim old hall seemed 



to be reverenced that night,— all was silence ; 
the boisterousness, the shrieks and peals of 
laughter that heretofore made merry student 
gatherings were gone. Soon came a greater 
hush, — the Dean entered, — the time was at hand. 
Then as the Dean announced the most success- 
ful candidate, joy unloosed her fetters, pande- 
monium reigned, — yet as down the list of honor 
men he read, silence once more held her own, 
for hearts were sad. Then came the envelopes, 
— what was within? — was the soul's grim ques- 
tion. The names were called — with trembling 
hands the cards were received. Some of the 
men, more fearful it seems, than others, thrust 
them hurriedly into their pockets and scurried 
away. Others thought awhile, the hands trem- 
bled more visibly now, the cards were with- 
drawn and then their faces told the tale. One, 
I remember, after receiving his card, walked up 
two or three steps. There he paused, as if un- 
certain whether to read it or not. It took but 
a moment to decide — and then? The hand 
shook like that of a man in the fire of tremens, 
the face ashened, tears glistened in his eyes. 
Like one turned into marble for a moment he 
stood, and then, heaving a deep sigh, hurriedly 
thrusting the envelope into his pocket, he stum-' 
bled up the steps. There a friend stopped him ; 
the friend asked a question, — there was but one 
question asked that night. The answer? A shake 
of the head, a voice choking, a heart near break- 
ing, cried out, "I didn't make it." Then he was 
gone. The man interested me. I asked my seat 
companion concerning him. I was told he was a 
good man, a hard student, yet — . My compan- 
ion shook his head and sighed ; the sigh was 
answered in my heart. Again I took notice of 
the men. One, as his name was called, buried 
his face in his hands. A friend took his card, — 
1 saw him smile as he read. Then he pressed 
the hand of the fearful one, and the latter know- 
ing then that all was well, in the joyful madness 
of the moment cried, embraced his friend and 
kissed him. Men were like babies — their hearts 
were those of women. Shouts, wild shrieks of 
joy resounded — the fight had been won. Hur- 
ried footsteps sounded on the stairs, telegrams 
were hastily dispatched, friends crowded about 
friends, men talked like children. Soon the 
building was deserted — no doubt Lady Frumen- 
ti was calling to some; others must tell the girl 
at home, or a mother. I took a walk over to 

the student building, but it was too much for 
me; not long did I stay. There I saw a few 
dejected mortals, their eyes watery, their faces 
sad, pale. With a voice that tried to be cheerful 
I told them my feelings, and they with faces ex- 
pressionless, looked at me, their lips opened, but 
no word came forth, for their hearts were bur- 
dened and a heart that is burdened does not 
speak. How would they tell their friends of 
their failure — what a blow to the fond folks at 
home ! How many failed is perhaps now known 
— twelve, it is said. For them we must be sorry 
in a way, yet truth is truth, and with rare ex- 
ception, he who fails has but himself to blame, 
tho 'tis hard to say. But has not such a night 
a lesson for us all ? Ah ! that night brought 
home many a lesson. "Oh, if I could have seen 
this years ago," I heard a student cry — and that 
cry was echoed in my heart and in the hearts 
of all who heard. 

We learn that Mr. Hyman Shalowitz, who 
took the Freshman year in 1911-12, will re- 
turn next year to resume his studies here. He 
will arrive the latter part of June. He married 
;i Russian lady, a medical graduate of the Uni- 
versity of Paris, and has been spending the past 
nine months with relatives in Odessa and Balta, 
South Russia. Mr. Shalowitz is not only a most 
promising student but a famous chess player,

The following members of the Junior Class 
received honorable mention at the Commence- 
ment, May 31 : — Messrs. Frontis Lentz and A. 
M. Patterson. 

The Faculty gave the graduates a banquet at 
Hyde's, on Howard St., near Franklin, on the 
evening of Commencement Day. All were pres- 
ent and the occasion was very enjoyable, even 
though there was a touch of sadness connected 
with the parting of the members of the class and 
the faculty. 

The table was decorated with red and white 
peonies and green ferns, and a rosebud lay be- 
side each plate. 

During the beginning of the evening and while 

the supper was being served, many familiar and 
enjoyable selections were rendered, after which 
Dr. Culbreth, the toastmaster, called on the var- 
ious professors for speeches. The presidents of 
both junior and senior classes responded, also 
several of the young ladies. 

Dr. Cole spoke on behalf of the ladies, thank- 
ing both professors and students for their kind- 
ness towards us during our stay at the Univer- 

The faculty invited all the graduates back to 
the school at all times, whether they came to 
seek information or to make a social call. They 
declared they would ever be ready to recci,- 
each and every one of us with outstretched arms. 
They wished the graduates to leave the school 
with the kindest feelings towards their Alma 
Mater, and the members of the faculty, senti- 
ments which I am sure all of us heartily enter- 
tained, even before they were mentioned. 

We were reminded that we were just begin- 
ning to be students and that we should still dil- 
igently prosecute the work we had undertaken 
by perusal of reference books and pharmaceuti- 
cal journals. 

Professor Caspari in his speech referred to 
drreat pharmacists whom he had met — Squibb, 
Thompson and others — men who have long since 
passed away. He hoped there would be enough 
£rood material among the present graduates to 
furnish a teacher to take his place at some future 
day. We hope for the good material among our 
graduates, but where, pray tell us, could we find 
one with the world-wide reputation, as both 
teacher and writer, of our esteemed and honored 
head of the faculty? But one thin? all iVe 
graduates can say, and that is. that in their pur- 
suit of knowledge in pharmac3^ they have met 
here one who is truly great, and who has done 
much for the uplifting of the professional side of 
pharmacy. And, if there is such a thing as 
spirits communicating from the other world, we 
will be sure in years to come, that our dear old 
professor will be lending a listening ear for the 
advancement made along pharmaceutical lines in 

, There was a little sadness connected with the 
final farewells, but all will no doubt keep the 
pleasant memories of this occasion in mind for 
a long time to come. A. A. S.

Vol. IX. No. 7. 


Price 10 Cents. 


Mr. Chairman, gentlemen of the Board of Re- 
gents of the University of Maryland, members 
of the Board of St. John's College, gentlemen of 
the student body, ladies and gentlemen : 

No small responsibility rested upon the Board 
of Regents of this University when the death of 
Mr. Carter occurred about one year ago. For 
eighteen years he had faithfully served this Uni- 
versity. All of us remember his magnificent 
presence. We all know that for nearly a quarter 
of a century he was the acknowledged leader of 
the Bar of Maryland, and with the great graces 
of his person, there was the courtesy and courage 
of the cavalier, because his blood traced back to 
the Lords Baltimore, and with that was coupled 
the gentleness of the woman, and behind that 
and above all, was the humility of the Christian, 
as he all his life had lived up to the faith which 
he had learned at his mother's knee. 

Now the task before us, as I have said, was 
an important one, because, looking back into the 
history of this University, all of the provosts who 
had preceded Mr. Carter were men of high 
standing in this community. The first one, Rob- 
ert Smith — whose name, I am afraid, had other- 
wise been lost because the name of Smith is so 
common — was yet possibly more distinguished 
than any of them. He had been a senator in our 
State Senate, a member of our House of Dele- 
gates ; he was a member of the first electoral 
college that elected General Washington presi- 
dent of this country; he was the Secretary of tha. 
Navy in the Cabinet of Mr. Jefferson ; later he 
was the Secretary of State and again the Secre- 
tary of the Navy and finally an Attorney-Gen- 
eral of the United States. And even after hold- 

ing all these offices, he was the Chancellor of 
Maryland ; he was appointed a judge of the Dis- 
trict Court, as our Superior Court was then 
called, and was also a minister to the court of 
St. Petersburg. 

Following him came Bishop James Kemp, and 
of him I need not speak, because he is known to 
every churchman in the Episcopal communion. 
And afterwards next in order, was the great 
Chief Justice Taney, and somehow I have a great 
kindliness for him because in his autobiography 
he stated that Annapolis, my old home, was the 
Athens of America, and as you know, he was 
second to none of all the Chief Justices of the 
United States ; in that Court he served for more 
than a quarter of a century. Then the next pro- 
vost was Ashton Alexander, of whom I do not 
know much. Following came John P. Kennedy, 
a very distinguished man who had served the 
State most faithfully in Congress, was Secretary 
of the Navy at one time, and yet I think he is 
best remembered by those delightful stories 
which we have all read, "Swallow Barn," 
"Horseshoe Robinson" and "Rob of the Bowl," 
and the latter I recommend especially to you 
young men of Maryland, because the scene is 
laid down in St. Mary's County, where was the 
beginning of this great State. 

Then followed Mr. Severn Teackle Wallis, 
who served longer than any, and I need not say 
anything about him to Baltimoreans. He was 
ranked, however, with Mr. Steele as the leader 
of the Bar of the State, but I think he had more 
reputation as an orator, because his satire and 
invective were at times almost fierce, as those 
at whom he struck will agree. 

Now then, with that proud record before us, 
as I have said before, the responsibility was a 
great one, and the Board of Regents appointed 
a committee of five, of which I happened to be 



the chairman, and we considered this question 
most carefully. We fully understood the posi- 
tion that this University has held and does hold, 
for more than one hundred years, and it is just 
as important now, even more so than ever, be- 
cause we send out men who go to all parts of 
the country, a large number into the rural dis- 
tricts where there is suffering that must be re- 
lieved ; men in graduating do not, as a rule, 
remain in the large cities where the emoluments 
are greater and the advantages also easier to be 

Li a remarkable address delivered before the 
State Bar Association last winter by Doctor 
Hugh H. Young, he dwelt — a Hopkins man — 
upon what this University had accomplished, and 
said that, as he recalled the names of Doctor 
Chew, Doctor Christopher Johnston, Doctor 
Donaldson, Doctor Miltenberger, Doctor Smith, 
the elder and his son, what these medical men 
and what the surgeons in the University of 
Maryland had done in the days before there 
were clinics and laboratories, was almost mar- 

The committee of' five considered the cjuestion 
most carefully and it is a pleasure for me to 
state, that with unanimity we selected Doctor 
Thomas Fell. The report of the committee was 
submitted to the Board of Regents and it must 
be a satisfaction to Dr. Fell to know that the 
vote there again was unanimous. After that it 
was necessary to deal with St. John's College, of 
which Doctor Fell was President, because he 
could not serve here if his duties there would 
be at all impaired, and as I happened to be the 
only member of the Board of Regents who is 
also a member' of the Board of St. John's Col- 
lege, I was asked to go there and explain the 
situation, and it is gratifying to me to state that 
the action of that Board was unanimous. So 
that Doctor Fell goes into the office with every 
possible compliment that could be bestowed upon

Doctor Fell is an Englishman, born in Liver- 
pool. His father was an English officer who was 
killed in the Crimean War. He was educated 
at the Royal Institution in Liverpool, at the Uni- 
versity of London and also .at the University of 
Munich, and came to this country in 1884 to 
accept the chair of Ancient Languages in the 
New Windsor (Maryland) College. In 1886 he 
was called to be President of St. John's College. 
He came there fully impressed with the impor- 
tance of the work. He knew the standard that 
had to be maintained, and it required courage, 
the English courage, of his fathers, to maintain 
that standard. Now he knew that this college 
over two hundred years old, was the third in the 
United States in point of time. Harvard and 
William and Mary only preceding it, and he 
knew that as a small college it had influence 
equal to that of any small college of the country; 
he was fully aware that this small college was 
large enough for him to spend on it his life's 
work. John Hanson Thomas, whose statue now 
adorns the capitol at Washington, claimed by his 
admirers to have been the first president of the 
United States because he was at one time acting 
president of the United States, was an alimmus 
of this college, as was also William Pinckney, 
and although Pinckney died at the early age of 
57, as an orator and lawyer he had no peer in 
this country, and his reputation was as great in 
England where he was our Minister to the Court 
of Saint James. 

Coming down a little later, this small college 
was large enough to send forth to his lifework 
Francis Scott Key. The British, after invading 
and burning Washington, returned to their ships 
and came down the Patuxent and sailed up to 
North Point where they met their Waterloo. 
There is a letter in the archives of the College 
written by Key to his mother. Key was in the 
volunteer service of his country and we all know 
how when some stragglers were coming along. 
Dr. Beanes thought the English had been unsuc- 
cessful and imprisoned two or three. Admiral 
Cockburn sent back some of his men and recap- 
tured them and took them back to his ship and 
Dr. Beanes with them. Key, in order to gain the 
freedom of Dr. Beanes, followed and was de- 
tained by the British during their attack on Bal- 



timore. Under these circumstances and while 
on the ship, Key wrote the "Star- Spangled Ban- 

Now Mr. Key, as an alumnus of this college, 
had a great reputation, not only because he wrote 
the "Star-Spangled Banner" and some of the 
beautiful hymns in the Episcopal service, but 
because he was a very distinguished lawyer, as 
shown by the reports of the- Supreme Court of 
the United States. At one time he served as 
District Attorney for the District of Columbia. 

In this same connection, a playmate of mine, 
was also a student in that school. Lieutenant 
Lockwood, the man who volunteered to go with 
the Greely expedition and who reached the 
farthest point that an explorer had reached. He 
advanced beyond the main body, but laid down 
his life, a hero. The United States Government, 
always kind and generous to its own, sent a naval 
officer there and brought back the body of Lock- 
wood, and now it rests in a cemetery on the 
Severn near Annapolis, and sometimes when I 
go there I visit that cemetery and I stand by the 
tomb of my old friend and ponder over the 
beautiful epitaph: "The sufferings of this pres- 
ent time are not worthy to be compared to the 
glory that shall be revealed in us." 

Now, ladies and gentlemen. Doctor Fell came 
to this college with that record to maintain, a 
record that had sent forth the ablest and best 
men almost in this country and Annapolis had 
been the scene by reason of the location of the 
college there, of some very inspiring occasions.

General Washington had a stepson, a student at 
the college, George Washington Custis. He had 
two nephews there, Fairfax and Lawrence Wash- 
ington, and in March, 1791, he visited these boys 
in the college and after he left he sent a con- 
gratulatory letter (Mr. Tuck here read General 
Washington's congratulatory letter). 

Later, in 1824, Lafayette came to this country 
as the guest of the nation. He came here on a 
ship of war of the United States, and one of the 
first visits he made was to Annapolis, because, 
as I have said, it was then known as the "Athens 
of America." There were many festivities ar- 
ranged in his honor and many balls given, and 
strange to say, all these things happened in the 
halls of St. John's College, one ball being given 
him there by the citizens of Baltimore and An- 
napolis. As he was leaving, he read this address 
in reply to the welcome which had been extended 
him (Mr. Tuck here read the address). 

Only two years ago President Taft visited 
Annapolis, when that monument to the French 
dead who lie buried there was unveiled by a 
grandson of Lafayette, the lady attending him 
being a granddaughter of Admiral de Barras and 
Admiral De Grasse, who held the British in 
check while the battle of Yorktown was being 

Therefore I claim that the record Doctor Fell 
found there had to be maintained and it was 
and is maintained by him. 

The funds of the college were never so low as 
in 188(i. Our buildings were not in good repair 
and it may be known to some of you that for 
four years all the buildings on the college grounds 
there had been occupied by sick soldiers of the 
Union Army and they were in very poor repair 
before then ; our finances were low, the student 
body small, and yet he approached it with the 
courage — and next to the American courage 
there is no courage equal to the courage of the 
English — I have referred to. and so the work has 
progressed until now our buildings are almost 
double in size and certainly more than double in 
value. We have three new buildings. Woodward 
Hall, Randall Hall and the gymnasium, and Mc- 
Dowell Hall is practically new, in fact entirely 
new, because it has been rebuilt upon its old 



JSTow^ gentlemen, it is very hard for one, as he 
ffd the setting sun, to let an 
opportunity go by to say a word of counsel. 
This is said only in sympathy. The only word 
I have to say to you is courage. I do not mean 
the courage only to fight the obstacles that lie 
before you, but I mean the courage to go the 
right path when you come to the parting of the 
ways. As we grow older we always look with 
sympathy upon those whose whole life practically 
lies before them. This fact was impressed upon 
me, I think, more forcibly than ever before, by 
an address which I once heard President Garfield 
deliver just a few weeks before his death. He 
was then the President of the United States. 
He had been a major-general in the volunteer 
service of his country, had been Speaker of the 
House of Representatives and a U. S. Senator 
from Ohio, and he said to those young men: 
"Whatever honors I have had, whatever posi- 
tions I have reached, I would renounce them all 
to be where you are, with your faces set to the 
future." Within three weeks the assassin had 
struck his blow and a few weeks thereafter the 
President was dead. He died with the same 
fortitude and Christian resignation he had al- 
ways manifested on the battle field. 

Now, then, I maintain that in no walk of life 
ir. courage and optimism more necessary than in 
the conduct of educational affairs. It is not only 
the soldier who must be brave, but I think the 
educator, and especially the educator in a college 
or university whose finances are the difficult mat- 
ters. I think optimism and courage are the assets 
which the Provost most requires, and as I said a 
moment ago, he is the son of a man who lost his 
life in the service of his country. May I speak 
to you just one word about the English courage ? 
Some years ago in the cathedral of St. Paul 
I stood by the tomb of Chinese Gordon and on 
that tomb there were fresh flowers and I was 
told that in all the years since his death those 
fresh flowers had been placed there every day. 
Afterwards, on my visit to Egypt, somehow or 


Baltimore and Greene Streets. 



other, this man's career became I can hardly ex- 
press to you how interesting. I followed it by 
reading and by talking and I think his death is 
almost the finest example in the history of cour- 
age. You may remember that he died at Khar- 
toum. He was not sent there by the government 
but went there under the belief that he could 
bring the Soudan into subjection by moral power. 
As the situation got worse he sent back his sol- 
diers and finally they had all gone and Chinese 
Gordon was there alone. He knew the hour 
would come when the stroke would be made and 
on the fatal morning he appeared in the full 
dress uniform of his rank, the highest in the 
English army. His uniform was white — not so 
white as his soul — and thus he met the fatal 
thrust. The English were aroused. Their cour- 
age came forth in the shape of armies and leaders 
who were eager to avenge his death by conquest 
of the Soudan. Lord Kitchener, a bachelor, a 
man of inagnificent size, was selected for the 
task after all others had failed. Lord Kitchener 
would never permit any but bachelors to serve 
on his staff. He knew war was a serious thing 
and he would have no staff officer who had wife 
or children dependent on him. 

On and on Kitchener advanced across the 
desert. The camels having failed as transports, 
they were superseded by a railway, and the army 
traveled by relays, for Kitchener felt that the 
only way to get to Khartoum was to have the 
supplies for his men always close to them ; after 
the army had advanced a certain distance, the 
supplies were brought up that distance. I re- 
member reading a little book by Steevens, entitled 
"\\'ith Kitchener to Khartoum," in which one 
entire chapter is devoted to the man Kitchener. 

Finally they came within striking distance, the 
battle was fought, Khartoum fell and as these 
men approached the spot where Gordon died, the 
first thing they did was to raise the English en- 
sign next the flag of Egypt. Next religious serv- 
ices were held and the hymns Gordon loved were 
sung. Today in Khartoum there stands an eques- 
trian statue of heroic proportions of this great 
man and Egypt is just as well governed now as 
any country in the world. 

Now, in closing, I just want to say one thing 
more about this English courage. You may have 



read, I am sure you did, that Captain Scott 
reached the South Pole with four men, only to 
find evidences there showing that he was not the 
first discoverer. He started back. One of the 
men suffering with frost-bitten feet so that he 
could hardly walk, finally went out into the bliz- 
zard to die, leaving the others to struggle on. 
The few words which I shall read to you are the 
last in the diary of Captain Scott, found on his 
body eight months after his death. Lr them I 
think you will find a pathos, a courage, a devo- 
tion that is almost unthinkable : "We arrived 
within eleven miles of our old One Ton Camp 
with fuel for one hot meal and food for two 
days. For four days we have been unable to 
leave the tent, the gale blowing about us. \Ye 
are weak. Writing is difficult, but for my own 
sake, I do not regret this journey, which' has 
shown that Englishmen can endure hardships, 
help one another and meet death with as great a 
fortitude as ever in the past. We took risks. We 
knew we took them. Things have come out 
against. us and therefore we have no cause for 
complaint, but bow to the will of Providence, 
determined still to do our best to the last. But 
if we have been willing to give our lives to this 
enterprise, which is for the honor of our country, 
I appeal to our countrymen to see that those who 
depend on us are properly cared for. Had we 
lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the 
hardihood, endurance and courage of my com- 
panions, which would have stirred the heart of 
every Englishman. These rough notes and our 
dead bodies must tell the tale, but surely, surely, 
a great, rich country like ours will see that those 
who are dependent on us are properly provided 

It may possibly have been amiss that I have 
dwelt so much upon this one characteristic of 
courage, and yet as I have said before, there is 
nothing so important, not only to you young men 
but for those who guide you ; and as I have had 
the pleasure of Dr. Fell's acquaintance since he 
became a member of the Faculty of St. John's 


College, 26 years ago, I can say with truth that 
I believe his strong characteristics are courage 
and confidence, and I believe as firmly as I stand 
here, and all his friends believe, that he will keep 
aloft the standard of this university and maintain 
its aft'airs unspotted from the world. 

I now have the great honor and the great 
privilege, to say nothing of the personal satis- 
faction, of presenting to you the newly-elected 
Provost of this University, Doctor Thomas Fell. 


A resolution was adopted at a recent meeting 
of the Alumni Association of St. John's College, 
held at the University Club in Baltimore, that 
Walter L Dawkins and Philemon H. Tuck pre- 
pare a Minute which would record the deep sor- 
row with which the association had learned of 
the death of Daniel Murray Thomas, the oldest 
alumnus of the college, also the oldest member 
of its Board of Visitors and Governors, and ex- 
tend our sympathy to his relatives, as well as 
give expression to the great loss which the com 
munity has suffered in the death of this most 
exemplary and good man. 

Mr. Thomas was born on West River, in Anne 
Arundel County, Maryland, and attended St. 
John's College, from which he graduated in 1846, 
almost sixty-seven years ago ; during this long 
period he lived a life to be admired by all, and 
it was an inspiration especially for the younger 
members of his profession. 

He became a member of the Board of Visitors 
and Governors of St. John's College in 1859, 
being the senior member of the Board at the 
time of his death, and served in that capacity for 
fifty-four years. It is doubtful if any one since 
the founding of this college, more than two hun-

14 N. EUTAW STREET S W. Cor. Eutaw and Saratoga Sts., Baltimore, Md. 



dred years ago, has ever been connected with it 
as student and official for so many years. 

Mr. Thomas read law in Annapolis in the 
office of Cornelius McLean, one of the leaders 
of the Bar in his generation. Within a few 
years after being admitted to the Bar, he came 
to Baltimore to practice his profession, and there 
resided until the time of his death. 

Shortly after the adoption of the Constitution 
of 1867, he was appointed Auditor and Master 
in Chancery of the Equity Court of Baltimore 
City, which office he retained until his death, 
during a large part of the time being the only 
Master, upon whom devolved a great deal of 
labor and responsibility, which he met with abil- 
ity and fidelity of the highest order. Since his 
death the Chief Judge of the Supreme Bench 
made the statement that so highly were the opin- 
ions of Mr. Thomas regarded by the judges that 
if the Court should happen to disagree with his 
findings it was necessary to prepare a very care- 
ful opinion in order to show the error of the 
Master's ruling. The record shows that no man 
ever served the courts so faithfully and so long 
as Mr. Thomas in this position, as he worked to 
the end, even beyond his eighty-sixth year, with 
the same interest and sagacity that he had dis- 
played in the prime of his youth. He fully 
measured up to the importance of the duties of 
this office, which when intelligently and with 
firmness performed reheves the judges of a great 
deal of work, as Mr. Thomas occupied towards 
the Chancery Courts the same relation as that 
held in England by the Master of the Rolls, gen- 
erally selected from among the leaders of that 

And yet the religious side of this man was 
the best. Reared from infancy in the Protestant 
Episcopal Church, he loved and served it faith- 
fully until his death, having been a vestryman 
of St. Luke's Church, Baltimore, from 1865 to 
1913, and was many times a member of the Dio- 
cesan Convention, as also a deputy to the Gen- 

"Nothing Too Large— Nothing Too Small" 



353-363 Equitable Building 

eral Convention of his church, considered one 
of the highest deliberative bodies in the world. 

Of his splendid characteristics, the most im- 
portant were his cheerfulness, courage, self-reli- 
ance and unselfisnness, so much so that his inti- 
mate friends, and he had them almost without 
number, did not know of his last illness, because 
it was not the habit of Mr. Thomas to give 
trouble to others. When the Nestor of our Bar, 
this old-time Southern gentleman, passed away, 
he left an example which may well be emulated 
by the entire profession, and by all those who 
enjoyed the honor and pleasure of his acquaint- 

In the beautiful springtime, which Mr. Thomas 
loved so dearly, God gave His beloved sleep ; 
his ashes now repose with those of his dear de- 
parted ; his soul has entered upon rest and peace, 
the peace of God which passeth all understanding. 

And friends! dear friends! — when it shall be 
That this low breath has gone from me, 

And round my bier ye come to weep — 
Let one, most loving of you all, 
Say: Not a tear must o'er him fall — 

"He giveth His beloved sleep!" 




Another commencement, one of the most satis- 
factory ever held, has passed into history. To 
sum up the events of the week, the Junior Ora- 
torical Contest was won by Mr. Godfrey Child, 
of Pocomoke City, Md. ; the inter-society debate 
was won by Messrs. R. V. Hoffman and O. M. 
Moore, representing the Philomathean Literary 
Society ; the prize of $25 for the Senior Oratori- 
cal Contest was divided between Messrs. E. T. 
Fell and Calvert Magruder ; "Randall Hall" ( for- 
merly known as "Senior Hall") was dedicated 
with impressive exercises in which Mr. Philemon 
H. Tuck delivered the main address ; a powerful 
and practical Baccalaureate sermon was preached 
to the graduates by the Reverend Dr. Charles L. 
Mead, of Baltimore ; the address to the graduates 
of the Preparatory School was delivered by Ed- 
ward T. Clark, Esq., of Ellicott City, Md. 

Two very attractive dances, the Phi Sigma 
Kappa Fraternity hop, and the Farewell Ball, 
were the main social features of the week. At 
the latter event, everything combined to make 



the evening a success, the night was perfect, the 
floor was not too crowded, the gymnasium was 
beautifully decorated, and Governor and Mrs. 
Goldsborough received. 

At the graduation exercises on Wednesday, 
June 18th, U. S. Senator Theodore E. Burton, 
upon whom was conferred the degree of Doctor 
of Laws, delivered a forceful and impressive 
address to the graduates, presenting to them the 
new problems that must be faced by the educated 
men of today, the great changes, political, social 
and industrial, which have been wrought in the 
world, and urging a life of fixity of purpose and 
devotion to ideals.

From June 24-27th, inclusive, St. John's was 
host to the Maryland Teachers' Association, 
which held its Annual Convention sessions in the 
gymnasium. At the meeting on Tuesday night, 
Dr. Thomas Fell delivered a cordial address of 
welcome. A considerable number of the teachers 
took quarters in the college dormitories and 
were provided with meals at the mess-hall. On 
Thursday evening a large dance, given by the 
Annapolis Chamber of Commerce, was held in 
the gymnasium in honor of the visitors. 

The report of the War Department, concerning 
the military work of the past session is favorable 
and creditable. St. John's is not included among 
the "Big Ten," so-called, of distinguished mili- 
tary institutions which are more exclusively de- 
voted to military work, but the college has been 
especially commended, along with five other in-

After being confined to institutions for the 
insane since April 22, when he was adjudged 
insane by a sheriff's jury at Towson without his 
knowledge, Dr. Marshall Langton Price, '02, for- 
mer Secretary of the Maryland State Board of 
Health, was declared sane by the verdict of a 
second sheriff's jury held at Towson, June 20. 
The second jury was summoned upon petition 
by Dr. Price, through his counsel, in which he 
claimed that the former proceedings were of an 
ex parte nature and without his knowledge. He 
declared on the witness stand that his nervous 
condition was caused by the death of his mother 
and other things. Drs. A. P. Herring and Charles 
G. Hill testified for Dr. Price and Dr. Edward 
N. Brush against him. 

The name "Provost," as the title of the head 
of the University, has been criticized by some 
as inappropriate. It is thought that "President" 
would be better. But practically they mean the 
same thing, viz. "one set over or appointed to 
preside and have authority," and therefore why 
change ? The very quaintness and uncommon- 
ness of "provost" — at least in America — give it 
an attraction and a charm. It is not uncommon 
in England and Scotland and the University of 
Pennsylvania shares it with us. As long as it is 
synonymous with "president," let us hold on to 
it as an honorable and sufficient designation, 
sanctioned by over a century's use and held by 
men whose names have shed lustre upon our 

Cannot something be done to fill the stage at 
our Commencements ? Only the first two or 
three rows of seats are occupied, then come sev- 
eral empty rows. How much better it would 
look to the audience, if these were filled also. It 
were better to allow the audience to occupy them, 
as was done last year than to leave them vacant. 
But why not fill them with the alumni ? Many 
alumni complain that they are not invited to the 
Commencements ; let them see that they are wel- 
come and expected to come. Publish an invita- 
tion to that effect in the newspapers and in Old 
Maryland. Many, we doubt not, will be glad 
to avail themselves of it and it will be one way 
to secure their interest and good will, which we 
fear have often been estranged in the past by 
neglect and indifference on our part. Let us omit 
nothing that will help to bind the alumni to their 
Alma Mater. 

The year 1913 is the centennial anniversary of 
the organisation of the University, as such. On 
the 22nd of April, 1813, in accordance with the 
recent act founding the University, the Regents 
provided for thereby met for organization. There 
were present the original Faculty of Physic, 
holding office by virtue of the Act of 1807, and 
the three other Faculties, of Divinity, Law and 
Arts and Sciences, appointed by it, the whole 
constituting the Board. It was decided that each 
Faculty should consist of seven professors and 
members. Archbishop John Carroll, of the R. C. 



Church, was elected Provost but he decHning, 
Hon. Robert Smith was chosen for the office and 
Dr. Richard Wihnot Hall was selected for Sec- 
retary. Although the Board did not lead a very 
active life upon its foundation, under the new 
auspices just inaugurated it promises to take a 
deeper interest in the University during the com- 
ing century. 

It has been ten years — oh July 1— since the 
Library of the Faculty of Physic entered upon 
an active career. The credit for the inception of 
that event is due, we believe, to Professor Ran- 
dolph Winslow. The Department possessed at 
that time a few hundred old volumes, unused, 
worm-eaten, mouldy, covered with dust, their 
very existence almost unknown. According to 
the report of the Librarian for the year ending 
June 1, 1913, the collection now stored m Davidge 
Hall, then numbered 11,655 volumes and within 
the last few days several hundred more have 
been added by Baltimore Medical College, so 
that the present number must approximate very 
closely to 12,500, forming one of the large medi- 
cal libraries of the country, indeed we may say 
of the world. Recent gifts of 143 new books by 
Dr. Nathan Winslow, of sets of German journals 
by Dr. L. Ernest Neale and of American journals 
by Dr. Randolph Winslow, have added greatly 
to its value. The total additions last year were 
915. University men may contemplate this noble 
collection, with its busts, portraits, diplomas, etc., 
with peculiar pleasure, for it is something to be 
proud of. Now for some rich alumnus to give 
it a building and endowment. 

There was some comment on the absence at 
the installation of our new Provost, of repre- 
sentatives of other colleges and institutions. Was 
it an oversight? Were there difficutlies in the 
way of expense and entertainment? Whose duty 
—if it were a duty — was it to see to such a thing? 
We cannot forget the great assembly of repre- 
sentatives and scholars, not only American but 
European, who attended the installation of Dr. 
Remsen as head of Johns Hopkins University, 
on the retirement of Mr. Oilman. Who can doubt 
that a similar observance will be paid to the 
induction of Dr. Remsen's successor? Are we 

so much inferior to the Hopkins that we must 
forego such things entirely? The same applies 
to our University banquet. Why not do as the 
others do and have representatives of universi- 
ties and colleges present on that occasion, at least 
those of Maryland institutions? 


The Provost has left with his family for his 
vacation in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Lu- 
ray, in the Valley of Virginia. The site of his 
summer sojourn may be conjectured from its 
significant name — "Skyland." Here, high on the 
mountain, about 500 persons spend the summer. 
Each family has its own bungalow and a caterer 
supplies meals for all in a central hall. Life is 
entirely unconventional, everything being made 
to contribute tg rest and health. Servants are 
left behind and an old suit and old straw hat 
supply the needs of clothing. In this lofty retreat 
with its fine vistas, the lines of Cowper must 
often recur to the minds of its occupants : 

"How oft upon yon eminence my pace 
Has slackened to a pause and I have borne 
The ruffling wind, scarce conscious that it blew; 
While admiration feeding at the eye 
And still unsated dwelt upon the scene."

A pamphlet came recently to the Library ad-

and widely-celebrated Medical and Chirurgical

Immediately before Dr. Fell began his address, 
at the Commencement, Judge Stockbridge read 
the following telegram from Mr. John Hays 
Hammond, whom he designated as "one of the 
foremost engineers, one of the most highly edu- 
cated men in the world today" : 

"Washington, May 31, 1913. 

"Dr. Thomas Fell. Please accept my sincere 
congratulations on the high honor conferred on 
you and my best wishes for a successful admin-

The Harvard Club of Baltimore has awarded a 
$250 tuition scholarship at the law school of 
Harvard University to Mr. Calvert Magruder, 
the honor man of the graduating class of St. 
John's and the Associate Editor of Old Mary- 
land. Mr. Magruder is the youngest son of 
ex-Judge Daniel R. Magruder, of Annapolis, 
and in carrying off the honors of St. John's, 
he is treading in the footsteps of his illustrious 
father, who was the honor man there just 60 
years ago. We shall watch Mr. M.'s career at 
Harvard with interest as it is highly probable 
that more honors await him in the study of the

. The annual banquet of the Alumni Association 
of the School of Medicine was held at the Em- 
erson Hotel on the evening of Commencement 
Day. A business meeting preceded. Dr. C. R. 
Winterson, the President, presiding and Dr. B.

The Governor of Maryland believes in the 
right of the people to be educated, and educated 
not only in the mere elements, but in the higher 
branches including the professions. It is the 
duty of the State, he says, to provide a college 
training for those who aspire to and are fitted 
for it, that they may be better prepared for the 
tasks and responsibilities which await them later. 

But he is the Governor of the whole State, the 
whole people, and he must consider the general 
interests. He thinks these can best be sub- 
served by welding together the educational act- 
ivities of the State into one great establishment, 
one great State University supported by the pub- 
lic revenues. 

Nor does he stop here, with mere theorizing — 
but declares his intention of appointing a Com- 
mission to study and recommend a plan for the 
revision and systematization of education in 

We are convinced that this is the solution of 
the question as far as we of this University are 
concerned. There is no other way in which we 
can secure that financial support which has be- 
come vitally necessary to our continued existence 
and creditable maintenance.

stitutions of the country, for the efficiency of the 
military department during the last year. 

General regret is occasioned by the fact that 
Lieut. D. Murray Cheston, the present command- 
ant, will be relieved of his detail at St. John's 
and ordered to his regiment in December. Ac- 
cording to the regulations of the War Depart- 
ment, an officer is allowed only a limited time of 
detached service. No successor to Lieut. Ches- 
ton has yet been selected, though there are many 
applicants for the position. 

A handsome portrait of the late John Wirt 
Randall, for several years chairman of the Board 
of Governors and Visitors, was presented to the 
College on June IG. C. M. 


It was a happy lot of Seniors that received 
their diplomas on May 31st and they had a right 
to be happy. An LL.B. from the University of 
Maryland is a thing of which any man may be 
proud, and we are — all of us. 

As was set forth in the last number of Old 
Maryland, impressive ceremonies marked the 
conferring of these honors and those who wit- 
nessed the Commencement will never forget. 
There are many reasons why we, shall never for- 
get it. 

The Senior Class was especially gratified to 
learn that the Scholarship Honor went to Mr. 
Lewin Claude Baily. Mr. Baily was a close 
student, but not to an extent which deprived 
him of his associations with his classmates. He 
was known and liked by us all. Mr. Baily was 
the editor from the Law Department for Terra 
Mariae and his "write ups" were generally com- 
mended for their wit and applicability. 

Mr. Edward Duffield Martin, the recipient of 
the Thesis prize, is also one of the most popular 
men in the class. Mr. Martin is an industrious 
worker and his ambitions to do the little things 
well will lead him, we have no doubt, to succeed 
in those great things which lie before him in the 

Through the courtesy and kindness of our 
Dean, Judge Henry Harlan, the members of the 
Graduating Class were invited to attend the An- 
nual Smoker which was given by the Alumni 
Association at the Medical and Chirurgical Build- 
ing. The entire affair was most pleasant and 
the courtesy of Judge Harlan was deeply ap- 
preciated by the whole class. The term spent at 
the University had been happy for us all and 
held only the most pleasant memories, and it was 
most appropriate that through the thoughtful- 
ness of our Dean, we should be enabled to meet, 
on the eve of our Commencement, many of those 
men with whom our future associations would 
be united.

On the evening of the Commencement a party 
of graduates from the Law Department, num- 
bering about 20, got together and went to a 
well-known resort for supper and a good time. 
They had it and there are many humorous inci- 
dents left in our minds of this occasion which 
will linger and cause many a good laugh when- 
ever one or more of this party get together in 
the future. 

On June 5th and 6th, in the Richmond Market 
Armory, the Bar Examination was held. About 
100 men took the test. The results are most 
gratifying to the followers of the University of 
Maryland. Out of the 54 who passed, three-fifths 
were U. of Md. graduates or students. To the 
few of our men, however, who unfortunately 
did not get through, we extend our sincere sym- 
pathy and trust they will see their way clear to 
try again. The following applicants were suc- 
cessful :

The 18th Annual Meeting of the Maryland 
Bar Association was held at Cape May, July 1-3. 
Judge Walter L Dawkins, '88, was elected Presi- 
dent and Mr. James W. Chapman, Jr., '97, was 
re-elected Secretary. The report of the Com- 
mittee on Legal Education, recommending that 
the course of study be extended from two to 
three years and that an educational qualification 
be required of applicants for admission to the 
bar, was unanimously adopted. Interesting ad- 
dresses were made by Associate Justice Mahlon 
Pitney, U. S. Supreme Court, Judge George Gray 
and Mr. Edgar H. Gans. There was a large 
attendance. H. L. G. 


The other "great pharmacists" whom Profes- 
sor Caspari has met, besides Squibb and Thomp- 
son (mentioned in the June number), were J. M. 
Maisch, Charles Rice, William Proctor, Jr., Ed- 
ward Parish and N. Hynson Jennings. It would 
be a nice thing if some one competent for the 
task would give us in Old Maryland sketches 
of these worthies. Dr. John F. Hancock is ad- 
mirably suited to do it. 

Dr. J. J. Wolfe, '12, has returned from Balti- 
more to his home, Union Bridge, Md. 

Professor Culbreth is spending the summer, as 
usual, at Spring Lake Beach, N. J.

There is a prospect that the consolidation be- 
gun in the medical schools will extend to the lazv 
schools. There are now two of the latter here, 
that of the University and the Baltimore Law 
School, which was affiliated with the Baltimore 
Medical College. There have been several meet- 
ings between represntatives of the two faculties. 
Ex-Judge Alfred S. Niles, '81, is Dean of the 
Baltimore Law School, which holds its sessions 
at night. It certainly seems highly desirable that 
the union should be efifected and the opportunity 
should be availed of o widen and lengthen the 
course and extend the standard, so that the re- 
sultant school should take its place in the front 
rank of such institutions. 

Judge James P. Gorter, '81, was the guest of 
honor at the dinner of the law class of 1912 
(held at the Hotel Rennert June 10) and made 
an interesting address. Among other things, he 
said that he thought that any testimony ought to 
be admitted in a case that has any bearing upon 
it, and the danger of fraud should not be used to 
keep out anything that would tend to a just and 
equitable settlement. There was considerable 
doubt in his mind, whether the person accused 
of guilt should be presumed to be innocent until 
proved guilty. Certainly he thought, a man's 
criminal record ought to be admissible as evi- 
dence. He was in favor of having all the light 
possible turned on every case, as shown in the 
case of Downes. The present rules may prevent 
the trying of a case in a manner tending to show 
the guilt of the accused. 


Congressman J. Charles Linthicum, '90, is in 
favor of a State University, to embrace, by affili- 
ation, consolidation or otherwise such schools, 
colleges and universities as may choose to unite 
therewith, to be governed by a Board of Regents 
and to have Johns Hopkins LTniversity as its 
apex. Combination of all sorts are now being 
formed, since experience teaches the advantage

of concert in action and its applicability in edu- 
cational affairs should be recognized. Everything 
is in its favor, economy, effectiveness, state pride, 
as has heretofore been frequently pointed out. 
But what would the shades of Potter and Hall 
say to our coming back to a "State University"? 

It would be an extremely good thing if every 
State would hasten the day when statutes will 
be adopted which make necessary the presenta- 
tion of health certificates before marriage. That 
these laws should be easy of enforcement they 
should not, in my opinion, be too drastic. 

Sentiment will always rule in the making of 
marriages, I suppose, but love with health will 
make for a far more perfect and happy marriage 
than love without health. More social problems 
will be solved by putting marriage on a health 
basis than in any other way, in my opinion. 

Normal persons are usually happy and con- 
tented when they are well, and therefore the 
most effective check which can be offered for the 
divorce evil is the encouragement of the mar- 
riage of healthy, happy people. 

The spread of the health marriage idea will 
mean that men particularly will come to think 
more of the care of themselves. The day when 
thinking people can give even passive support to 
the so-called double standard is rapidly passing. 
Young men who think they must "sow wild oats" 
must be taught that the fathers and mothers of 
the land will not allow their daughters to enter 
innocently into such a union. 

How far the health marriage laws should go 
is a matter to be .decided carefully by the States 
that make them. — Surgeon-General Rupert 
Blue, '92. 


The object of education is to acquire the ability 
to use one's brains. In a vocational, technical or 
professional school, it is the use of one's brains 
in a limited field for one particular purpose. In 
general education, the object is to develop one's 
mental powers for any purpose to which they 
may subsequently be applied. This is a much 
more difficult problem specially in view of our 
ignorance how far aptitudes acquired in one 
subject can be transferred to another. — Lowell.

By Nathan Winslow. 

It is meet that, upon the occasion of the re- 
appearance of "Old Maryland" after a lapse 
of four months, tribute be paid its founder and, 
until his death, editor. Today a man's success 
is judged by the amount of wealth he can ac- 
cumulate, nevertheless there are still a few left 
who through temperament are unfitted to ac- 
cumulate money. Are we to say therefore that 
their lives are spent in vain? Happily we can- 
not always measure a man's usefulness by this 
standard, and one of such as the mist of times 
become more and more hazy and most of us 
have passed into an oblivious desuetude, will 
live on forever and be honored by not only our 
children's children, but theirs and so on as 
long as there be a medical profession in Mary- 
land. Doctor Cordell devoted his talents to tne 
uplift of man. It was along this avenue that 
he found his talents best suited and most hap- 
piness. He had no idea of money when it came 
to himself, and would cheerfully deny himself 
the bare necessities of life if he thought he 
could be of service to the downtrodden and 
afflicted. The T'niversity of Maryland is proud 
to have numbered him amongst her alumni and 
will always cherish his memory as a most de- 
voted, altruistic, unselfish, loyal alumnus, bent 
upon doing his part in advancing her prestige as 
he saw the light. A noble soul has passed to 
his reward, but in this case we feel that he still 
lives, as he has given us by precept and ex- 
ample ideals which will exist as long as there 
be an University of Maryland. He with James 
Carroll will rank forever as one of our im- 
mortals, Avhose life will be looked up to as a 
constant reminder of what one devoted servant 
can do for the institution he loved so well. 

Idealist! Our prayer is that we had more 
such. Unencouraged, rebuffed, sub.iect to con- 
tumely and condemnation, unpaid, he wended 
his Aveai\y wa.y beating the highways and the 
byways in an effort to build up an endowment 
fund, which he realized to be an absolute neces- 

sity, if the University of Maryland is to survive 
the stress of times. If he did .not succeed in 
commensuration with the labors expended, still 
he could die happy in the thought that he finally 
succeeded in arousing our faculties and alumni 
into a full realization that endowment is an 
absolute necessity. It indeed must have been 
a satisfaction in his declining years to feel that 
now whatever comes of the endowment, it was 
he who collected the nucleus. Certainly as 
early as 1880. if not earlier, he had commenced 
to talk and urge endowment. But it was not 
until 1897 that he collected his first contribu- > 
tion, which was $10.00, from Professor Ran- 
dolph Winslow. A less persevering man would 
have long before through lack of success dis- 
continued-all efforts in this line. Not Doctor 
Cordell, however, for anyone who knew him, 
knew that tenacity of purpose was a part of 
his soul. Slowly at first but a little more 
rapidly toward the end. the fund increased, so 
that at the time of his death it totaled approxi- 
mately $50,000.00. To be sure a small amount, 
but an enormous amount when one takes into 
consideration that it was practically the effort 
of a single loyal-hearted alumnus. 

As important as the endowment fund is 
to the continued existence of the University 
of Maryland, to our mind Doctor Cordell's 
greatest service to his Alma Mater, was his 
creation of an University Spirit, "The Univer- 
sity Idea." In order to better spread his propa- 
gandas he founded and edited "Old P^ary- 
land, " a periodical which from the very first 
issue became a force in creating new policies 
in the University. At such a recent period as 
ten years ago, each department -held aloof from 
the others. There was nothing in common. 
Doctor Cordell played an important part in 
welding the interests of the several departments 
so that now when one speaks of the University 
of Maryland, one does not think of the medical 
department, or the law department, but as one 
should a central organization which includes 
all the schools. He was the organizer of the 
General Alumni Association, and in its early 
days devoted much time and effort in making 



it a success. In fact he was actively interested 
in any movement which tended to advance the 
University. When in 1903 he was appointed 
librarian, he found a collection of 1,500 vol- 
umes, mostly old, obsolete and worthless for 
present day purposes. He immediately set about 
building up a modern library and was success- 
ful beyond all measure. At the time of his de- 
mise, the library containing approximately 
11,000 volumes, was classed as one of the best 
medical libraries in the United States, These 
are the chief activities which our dear departed 
friend was chiefly concerned with in the Uni- 
versity, Outside of these duties, he found much 
time to devote to other benevolent purposes, 
such as the founding of the Home for Widows 
and Orphans of Physicians, together with Dr, 
Leigh Bonsai and Mr, George Torrance, the 
Home- for Incurables, and with others the 
Woman's Medical College of Baltimore. It is 
largely through his efforts that the Medical and 
Chirurgical Library is one of the Avorld's re- 
nowned medical collections, for when he took 
hold of it, many years ago, it was insignificant, 
but through hard work he gradually accumu- 
lated the nucleus of the present magnificent 
collection. At the time of his death he was 
Professor of History of Medicine in the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, to which position he 
was appointed in 1903, He was a recognized 
authority in his chosen line, bearing not only 
a local but an international reputation. As a 
recognition of his eminence in this field of med- 
ical research he was only recently elected an 
Honorary Member of the Royal Society of Med- 
icine, London, Section of History of Medicine, 

He was a painstaking investigator, and from 
his pen issued the Medical Annals of Maryland, 
A Historical Sketch of the University of Mary- 
land, and later and more pretentious a two- 
volume history of the LTniversity of Maryland, 
These writings are celebrated for their accu- 
racy of statement, will be consulted by future 
historians, and will serve to forever perpetuate 
liis name. 

These are only some of his many and varied 

activities. He lead an active and useful life, a 

life which will forever be an inspiration to the 

youth of future generations. His constant 

prayer for the University of Maryla.nd was: 

"Gorl give us men! A time like tliis demands 
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready 

hands ; 
Men who possess opinions and a will." 


The Wisconsin Idea and its Relation to 

The modern world has been recently touched 
and transformed by the Spirit of Democracy. 
A new test is now applied for the worth of 
life, the test of service. A man must not only 
be good, but good for something. Precisely 
the same test must be applied to education. 
How much is it worth? Education should bring 
out the best that lies in each member of the com- 
munity, thereby fitting him or her to be of the 
greatest possible service to it. 

Therefore, we may take "Democracy" and 
"Sei'vice" as the key words which unlock the 
Wisconsin idea. 

The University of Wisconsin, soon after it 
was established, realized that education is 
broader than the school, and that democracy, if 
it pays the taxes, demands its full share of the 
benefits derived therefrom — that universities 
must come into closer contact with the life of 
the people. 

It was seen that a large number of men 
and women desire to continue their education 
after they become wage earners, also that many 
thousand persons are taking correspondence 
courses of some sort, and this at a cost of prob- 
ably a million dollars annually. This pointed to 
the fact that many people were awake to the 
need of further education. 

The University of Wisconsin recognized the 
existence of this need and determined to carry 
the teaching force and wealth of learning pos- 
sessed by the University to the- State 's f m-thest 

There were at that time no vocational schools 
in the state. The boys and girls who were 
obliged to leave school to become wage earners 
had no further opportunity to educate thejn- 

The public schools bad little to attract those 
who had no ambition to continue their educa- 
tion for a jDrofessioual career. The boy in the 
shop had no means of acquiring additional 
education to help him to become a foreman. 



Men in business did not appreciate the possi- 
bilities of assistance that might be derived from 
a clearer understanding of economic forces. 

fSo after careful consideration it was decided 
to reorganize what was called the Department 
of University Extension. This idea did not 
originate in Wisconsin. Many years ago this 
method vi^as used at Oxford University in Eng- 
land, also much of the commercial supremacy of 
the German Empire is based on the skilled in- 
telligence of its workingmen, but at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin this extension directed it- 
self almost entirely to the advancement of the 
agricultural, industrial and civic interests of 
the State. 

The extension movement was directed to : 

First: Instruction of artisans and appren- 
tices in their shops, their homes and local re- 

Second: Teaching of business men and 
clerks. "* 

Third: The traveling package libraries on 
present day problems. 

The work done under the direction of this 
branch is of a most interesting character. A 
system has been developed by which informa- 
tion can be given on many subjects which iso- 
lated organizations or individuals could not 
secure, except by long search. 

As up-to-date articles upon live questions of 
public interest are found, not in books, but in 
newspapers, magazines and reports, this ma- 
terial is clipped, mounted, classified and bound, 
made up in a sort of scrap book, and sent under 
simple rules, to public libraries, teachers or in- 

Fourth: Municipal Reference Bureau, by 
which municipal officers are assisted in solving 
problems connected with water, light, sewage 
and hygiene. 

Fifth: Commergial Reference Bureau. 

Sixth: Health Bureau, directed to the con- 
servation of human life. 

Seventh: Studies in the production and 
marketing of farm i^roducts. 

Eighth: Production and dissemination of 
grain in the State. 

Ninth: The right and wrong way in milk 

Tenth : Live-stock improvement. 

Thus the people of Wisconsin are getting 

help from their university which they deeply 
appreciate, and in return for which they have 
given it a liberal and enthusiastic support. 

Now turning to Maryland, and considering to 
what extent we can employ these methods here, 
it is evident that the general conditions of 
education in Maryland are so far removed from 
what is found in Wisconsin, and the character 
of the i^oi^ulation so diverse from that which 
exists there, that it is extremely difficult to ex- 
press one in the terms of the other. 

Wisconsin is a unified agricultural State, and 
the university dominates all forms of education 
in that State, even controlling the State Board 
of Education. 

Maryland is one of the older states, replete 
with traditions and conservative feeling. That 
it is awakening to a realization of the progress 
of democracy is evident. 

People are becoming aware that between the 
last generation and that now in school, there 
has been a more radical change in industrial 
and in educational conditions than between any 
two previous generations known in history. 

Usually changes appear at the top, but it is 
the stirring of the great mass that produces 
the froth. 

To meet this there must be an educational 
system so democratic in administration that the 
citizen through every stage of his development 
may find his relation to his environment and 
its relation to himself. 

There is in Maryland already existing a great 
educational machinery known as the public 
schools which ought to be utilized more 
efficiently in this work. 

This can be done by conveying to the teach- 
ers of the public schools the wealth of learning 
formulated in college and university, which 
is now available in summer schools and pedogo- 
gical courses. The vocational interests of the 
people should be provided for and the rural 
schools improved. 

All of the above is set forth in an excellent 
report recently submitted by Superintendent M. 
B. Stephens to the State Board of Education 
and adopted by them. 

Finally there is needed a more systematic 
adjustment of i^rimary, secondary and higher 
education to meet the needs of the people. 



This is what the University of Maryland is 
striving to accomplish by combining under the 
aegis of a State University all the institutions 
of learning supported by the State of Maryland. 

This movement, which is already in progress, 
will, if carried to a full conclusion, create a 
marked advance for the betterment and uplift 
of the whole system of education in Maryland. 
The people then could see that the money ap- . 
propi'iated for educational purposes, is returned 
to them manifold by the benefits derived from 
such a system of State education. 


At a meeting of the executive committee of 
the University of Maryland Alumni Associa- 
tion, held on the 8th day of October, 1913, the 
following resolution was adopted : 

"Whereas, Eugene Fauntleroy Cordell de- 
parted this life on the 27th day of August, 
1913, it is appropriate that tribute should be 
paid to his character and that a record and an 
acknowledgment should be made of his great 
and valuable services to the University of Mary- 
land, to this association, to his profession and 
to the community. 

"Dr. Cordell had a distinguished career in 
the Confederate Army during the Civil War, 
having suffered imprisonment and shed his 
blood in the cause he espoused; he had an hon- 
orable record as a practicing physician and im- 
portant and useful activities in many fields not 
directly connected with the University of Mary- 
land; but we knew him most intimately as the 
founder, organizer, long-time moving spirit and 
adviser of this association and its related ac- 
tivities — the Alumni Advisory Council, the En- 
dowment Fund and "Old Maryland." While 
the qualities of mind and character which he 
displayed in this work were no different from 
those he bestowed upon his larger and perhaps 
better-known service, yet we gratefully record 
his conscientious attention, his assiduous labors, 
his cheerfulness, his patience, his faith. No 
duty ever imposed, no request ever made of 
him relating to the welfare of the university 
was ever neglected ; rather was it performed to 
the utmost and beyond. It is more honor to his 

memory to state that his great and useful labors 
were labors of love. We honor him as the 
founder and father of this association ; of " Old 
Maryland" and its able editor to the last, as 
one of the originators of the Alumni Advisory 
Council, as the historian of the university, as a 
teacher in its halls, as a tried and true friend 
to the young men who came under his influence 
and as an example to them and to all the world 
of a Christian gentleman. 

"We hereby direct that this resolution be en- 
tered upon the minutes of the Alumni Associa- 
tion and of the Alumni Advisory Council, that 
a copy thereof be transmitted to the university 
for preservation in its archives, and that a copy 
be sent to Dr. Cordell's family. 


"Secretary. President." 

The Latin-American Club held its annual 
meeting at the local branch of the Young Men's 
Christian Association, Sunday, October 19, 
1913. The attendance was large and a spirit of 
enthusiasm prevailed. The old members of the 
Club extended a cordial welcome to the new 
Latin- American students, especially to those 
from the Baltimore Medical College. Without 
doubt, the Club this year will be stronger than 
ever. Officers for the ensuing year were elected 
as follows: 

President Antonio Balart. 

Yice-President S. A. Coeco. 

Secretary J. R, Echeverria. 

Treasurer Vincent Roca. 

Historian Albert Portuondo. 

Sergeant-at-Arms J. L. Rodriquez. 

The next meeting will be held Sunday, Octo- 
ber 26th, at the same place. At least sixty 
new members are then expected to join the 
Club. The aim of the Latin-American Club of 
past years has been the bettering of the scholas- 
tic standing of the Latin-American student, 
and the Club this year expects to carry out the 
same program, but more fully. 

"Old Maryland" extends its kindest wishes 
to our Latin-American students, and wishes 
them a most successful and prosperous year.

NOVEMBER 1, 1913. 


Owing to the sudden death of Eugene P. 
Cordell, A.M., M.D., its founder and able edi- 
tor, "Old Maryland" has failed to make its 
customary monthly appearance. Unexpectedly. 
August 27, 1913, the university authorities were 
shocked by the announcement of the death of 
our faithful servant. A week prior to that 
date he had undergone what was thought to be 
a minor operation, and was apparently maldng 
an uneventful and rapid convalescence, when 
suddenly and without warning he went into 
fatal collapse from which he never rallied. 
Though "Old Maryland" is the official organ 
of the General Alumni Association of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, still it was the property 
of Doctor Cordell, and before it could again b;' 
issued, arrangement had to be made with the 
estate, as well as an editor or editors appointed 
to take the place of our late friend. At the 
October 8th meeting of the General Alnmni 
Association, Doctor Cordell 's widow presented 

the publication to this body which immediately 
appointed Doctors Albert H. Carroll and Nathan 
Winslow editors, to be assisted by an advisory 
board of one member from each department, 
viz., Medical, Dr. H. M. Robinson; Law, James 
W. Bowers, LL.B. ; Dental, Dr. P. J. Valentine ; 
Pharmacy, E. Prank Kelly, Phar.D. ; Academic, 
Thomas Pell, LL.D. It is also the intention of 
the editors to appoint an undergraduate e.ditor 
from each department, thereby giving the en^ 
tire university body representation upon the 
Board of Editors. The new editors beg to 
state that with the co-operation of our readers 
they will make every effort to continue "Old 
Maryland" on the same high plane and will 
endeavor to their utmost to foster the same 
ideals as its founder. With a full realization 
that they are treading in the footsteps of one 
who was especially well favored with scholarly 
attainments, they ask your indulgence, if per- 
chance they fall short of Doctor Cordell 's 
literary standards. It is needless to remind you 
that "Old Maryland" is essentially a news- 
paper whose function is to keep each and every 
alumnus, as well as undergraduate, posted on 
tmiversity events of general interest. It is the 
binding link between the present and the.past, 
and as such occupies an important place in the 
university organization. The editors bespeak 
the same kindly reception as accorded their 
predecessor, and they upon their part will do 
everything to make "Old Maryland" a real 
live factor in luiiversity affairs. 


If for no other reason than because "Old 
Maryland" is the child of Dr. Cordell 's brain, 
it should be continued. It was very close 
to his heart also. No one who knew him 
at all well ever questioned this. There was 
something almost pathetic in the way he would 
stop you on the street, in the hospital corridors 
and in fix)ut of Davidge Hall and ask if you had 
received the copy he had left for you at your 
office or in j'our room. "Old Maryland" was 
never a financially prosperous publication, and 
to distribute it personally rather than by post 
was one of the economies he felt compelled to 

Prequently I have heard him almost tip-toe, 
so gently would he come, up to my door, and 



leave the monthly copy. At times he would 
ring but as often he would not. He did not 
wish to intrude or run the risk of intruding. 

Each copy represented his thoughts, his am- 
bitions, his cherished aims, and Avhen he had 
left it no doubt he experienced an admixture 
of feelings of pleasure and regret. For was 
he not parting with something very dear to 

At any rate he would depart as quietly as 
he had come. It was a characteristic of Dr. 
Cordell to do things quietly. There was never 
any noise or blataney about him. He kept hard 
at the tasks he had set out to accomplish. ' ' Old 
Maryland" was one of these. And "Old Mary- 
land" is to live although Dr. Cordell has passed 
on to the land where there are no sorrows, 
no disappointments, no regrets, for there 
is a real need for ' ' Old Maryland ' ' at 
Old Maryland. Although that portion of each 
previous issue which so well represented Dr. 
Cordell 's personality will be sadly missed, there 
will be an effort to supply, from time to time, 
papers dealing with historical subjects. 

"Old Maryland" has not heretofore meant 
as much to the undergraduate body as it 
shoiTld. This was in no way due to the fact that 
it did not merit a keen interest on the part of 
the student body, for each issue contained much 
news of a truly undergraduate nature. Per- 
haps to a certain degree, this was due to the 
failure of the students to appreciate that the 
columns were always open to them in regard 
to publishing those events and doings which 
are dear to the heart of every college man. 
Fraterrdty news of a general nature, athletic 
news, Y. M. C. A. doings, various class activi- 
ties, pei'sonal notes and mention of those col- 
lege events which have transpired during the 
past month and of future events, all are re- 
quired to stimulate and to keep alive an active 
iiiterest among the students of the various de- 

"With this object in view a number of as- 
sociate editors have been appointed. Mr. Stein 
will aid Mi^. Byers in editing the columns de- 
voted to matters of interest to the medical un- 
dergraduate. Dr. Fell will be asked to appoint 
a man to edit St. John's department. The Law, 
Pharmacy and Dentistry departments will each 
have a contributing editor. 

In this way all the students of all the depart- 
ments should awaken to the fact that "Old 
Maryland" is truly a student's paper. 

And yet it is naturally not the object to make 
"Old Maryland" entii'ely an undergradviate 
publication. It must and will continue to be 
edited for the alumni as well. 

What does "Old Maryland" stand for? For 
many things, but most of all for a binding 
together of the various departments and for 
a keeping alive the interest of our graduates in 
their Alma Mater, and in all those movements 
both within and without which make for the 
advancement of "Good Old Maryland." 


It has been suggested that a memorial tablet 
be placed in Davidge Hall to the memory of the 
late Dr. Eugene F. Cordell. A more fitting place 
could not be found for the tablet, as it was 
there Dr. Cordell spent many of his last hours. 

Peeling that many of Dr. Cordell 's friends 
are desirous of contributing toward this tablet, 
we take this opportunity of announcing that 
a subscription list has been opened. The fol- 
lowing have subscribed: 

Dr. A. M. Shipley, $25. 

Dr. Nathan Winslow, $10. 

Dr. D. W. Cathell, $10.! 

Dr. Eugene Kerr, $10.

Manj^ inquiries have been coming into this 
office concerning the eligibility of Baltimore 
Medical College graduates (Medical, Dental, 
Legal) to the alumni association of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. It gives us pleasure to 
announce to our new alumni that they are eligi-

Dr.^ B. B, Brim, class of 1902, of 901 Phillips 
avenue, Toledo, Ohio, has been making an ex- 
tended tour of the Eastern cities and hospitals. 
He spent about three weeks in Boston at the 
hospitals in connection with the Harvard Medi- 
cal School, where he saw some very interesting 
work by some of the leading surgeons. He also 
visited New York, Washington and Baltimore. 
While in the city he visited his Alma Mater, 
where he was heartily welcomed by a number 
of his old friends. 

Prof. Randolph Winslow is in receipt of the 
following letter from Dr. Josiah S. Bowen, 
class of 1903, of Mt. Washington, Md. 

"Mt. Washington, Baltimore County, Md., 

"September 1, 1913. 
"My dear Dr. Winslow: 

'"It is with great sadness that I learn of the 
death of our dear old friend, Dr. Cordell. 

■-"Dr.'-CordeU was a gentleman of whom too 
much ca,hnot be said in a laudatory manner. 
He will be greatly missed by those who knew 
him. A memorial of some kind should be started 
in our State Faculty to Dr. Cordell, and as you 
. are, thej, .president-elect, I take the liberty to 
write to, you and suggest that the memorial 
should .take, the form of a museum of medical 
and surgical appliances. Cases coiild in time 
■be,; /provi4,ed. ' The gifts, I feel, should bear a 
iJiard., giving the name of the donor. Should 
such,, a .collection be started, I should like to be 
-enrolled as No. 1, and will give the following : 

A cupping set, vaporizer (steam), tourniquet, 
vectus, obstetrical forceps, spring lance, vaginal 
speculum, and perhaps others; also two wire 
N. R. Smith anterior splints. 

"Trusting that you will consider this favor- 
ably, I beg to remain, 

"Very truly yours, 

"J. S. BOWEN." 

Dr. Thomas Pell, provost of the University 
of Maryland, and president of St. John's Col- 
lege, was the principal speaker at the long- 
table luncheon of the City Club, Saturday, 
October 18, 1913. His subject was, "The Wis- 
consin Idea and Its Relation to Maryland, ' ' part 
of which address is published in another part 
of "Old Maryland." 

Dr. Albert Hynson Carroll, class of 1907, one 
of our new editors, of the Ashby Apartments, 
who was recently confined to the Maryland Uni- 
versity Hospital, has sufficiently recovered to 
resume his practice. 

Dr. H. E. Peterman, Baltimore Medical Col- 
lege, class of 1895, of 2831 St. Paul street, who 
has been spending some time at Cherry Tree, 
Pa., and Atlantic City, N. J., has returned to 
his home. 

Dr. John Rawson Pennington, class of 1887, of 
4620 Kenmore avenue, Chicago, 111., is a mem-

ing at Minneapolis, Minn., June 16 and 17, 1913. 

Dr. Gordon Wilson, professor of clinical med- 
icine, who has been spending some time at North 
Hatley, Canada, has returned to the city. 

.. The annual report of the library of the de- 
partment of medicine of the University of Mary- 
land for the fiscal year shows that the library 
had on hand June 1, 1913, 11,655 bound volumes, 
and since that date the collection of the Balti- 
more Medical College, amounting to about 1,000

Dr. Benjamin Newhouse, class of 1912, an- 
nounces the opening of his office, 1136 6th street, 
N. W., Washington, D. C. Dr. Newhouse re- 
cently resigned as resident physician at the 
Emergency Hospital, Washington, where he has 
been for the past year. His excellent work at 
the hospital has attracted much attention and 
we wish him every success in his private prac- 


The number of matriculates this year is 170, 
87 being in the senior class. 

Dr. Herbert F. Gorgas, class of 1891, for- 
merly of 845 N. Eutaw street, announces 
that he will be located at The Buckler, south- 
east corner Charles and Centre streets, after 
October 1. 

The Dental Department opened its doors for 
the regular session of 1913-14 on October 1. 
Dr. Heatwole, the dean, delivered an address 
appropriate to the occasion. The faculty and 
student-body assembled about 10 A. M., and 
after proceeding to the lecture hall, where the 
exercises were held, listened to the remarks of 
the dean, which will be published later. 

By the amalgamation with the Baltimore 
Medical College we have in our department 
several new instructors. Drs. Smith and Cru- 
zen have been assigned places on the faculty 
and Dr. Frank P. Haynes is appointed a lec- 
turer on Dental Anatomy. 

Dr. Walter E. Green has been appointed a 
demonstrator in the Dental Infirmary and will 

be there five days each week to assist Dr. Rea 
in the junior class. 

Dr. James W. Holt, of Boston, class 1913, 
was appointed on the staff of the Forsythe Den- 
tal Infirmary of Boston. 

Dr. Leo J, 'Hearn, class 1913, was offered a 
place at Bellevue but declined, owing to his 
inability to attend. 

We have had quite a few of our alumni to 
visit us during the session, among them being 
Dr. R. 0. Apple, of Winston-Salem ; Dr. J. Levis 
Saunders, of Andura, S. C, and Dr. W. Deg- 
nan, of Connecticut, accompanied by Mrs. Deg- 
nan, who are traveling South on their wed- 
ding journey. 

The alumni of this department of the Uni- 
versity may be interested to know that Dr. 
David C. White, class of 1911, has received an 
appointment as interne to the National Soldiers ' 
Home, in Washington, D. C. This appointment 
came through a request from the surgeon in 
charge to the Dean, for the recommendation 
of a suitable man for the place. Dr. White, dur- 
ing the session of 1912-13, had charge of our 
extracting room, and while serving in this ca- 
pacity proved his worth as a painstaking and 
capable young man and well qualified to fill 
the place to which he has been called. 

The Dental Department mourns the loss of 
Dr. Eugene F. Cordell, whose interest in our 
department and the profession was untiring, 
and we trust that his memory will live for many 
years as a teacher and friend. 


At the meeting of the American Bar Asso- 
ciation at Montreal, Canada, on September 1, 
2 and 3, 1913, the Maryland Bar was well rep- 
resented, there being thirty-three in attend- 
ance ; five judges of the Court of Appeals, Chief 
Judge A. Hunter Boyd and Associate Justices 
Henry Stoekbridge, '78 ; John P. Briscoe, N. 
Charles Burke and John R. Pattison; three 
judges of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City, 
Chief Judge Henry D. Harlan, '81, Dean of 
the Law School of the University of Maryland, 
and Associate Judges Walter I. Dawkins, of St. 




John's, and H. Arthur Stump. From the Balti- 
more Bar there were George Whitelock, W. 
Thomas Kemp, of St. John's; John Hinkley, 
Eugene 'Dunne, 1900, Morris A. Soper, Moser 
R. Walter, J. Henry Baker, Gaylord Lee Clark, 
Frank Gosnell, Edgar Allan Poe, the Attorney 
General of Maryland, E. Allan Sauerwein, A. 
Craig McLanahan, C. R. Wattenscheidt, Jesse 
SlinglufE, A. Hunter Boyd, Jr., James W. Bow- 
ers, E. P. Keeeh, Edward A. Donnelly, W. 
Irvine Cross and Stevenson A. Williams, of 
Belair, T. Scott Offutt, of Towson, Thomas 
H. Robinson, of Belair, and Ferdinand Wil- 
liams, of Cumberland; also Edwin J. Farber, 

George Whitelock was re-elected Secretary 
and W. Thomas Kemp, Assistant Secretary; 
Judge N. Charles Burke, Vice-President for 
Maryland; Judge Henry Stockbridge, '78, 
member of the General Council of Maryland; 
and on the Local Council of Maryland, Judge 
Walter I Dawkins, John Hinkley, James W. 
Bowers, '79, and Eugene 'Dunne, 1900, were 
elected. It was a most enjoyable occasion, be- 
ing attended by over 800 members of the Amer- 
ican Bar Association, many with the ladies of 
their families, besides many members of the 
Canadian Bar. 

The drawing card was, of course, the pres- 
ence and address of the Lord High Chancellor 
of England, Lord Haldane, but from the Ameri- 
can Bar addresses were made by Hon. William 
H. Taft, ex-President of the United States; 
Edward Douglas White, Chief Justice of the 
Supreme Court, and several others. 

Maryland was well represented by Judge N. 
Charles Burke, who gave an interesting talk 
on "Legal Procedure and Social Unrest." 

The consolidation of the Baltimore Law 
School with the Law School of the University 
of Maryland, which, after several months of 
negotiations, was finally consummated on June 
15, 1913, thus giving our Alma Mater a very 
strong Legal Department, capable', of doing 
much good in elevating the standard of the legal 

The consolidation has brought into the ser- 
vice of our Alma Mater the following of her 
sons : Hon. Alfred S. Niles, 1881, former Judge 
of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City, who 
lectures on Constitutional Law; Eugene 

'Dunne, 1900, who lectures on Criminal Law 
and Medical Jurisprudence; Randolph Barton, 
Jr., 1893, who lectures on Legal Ethics and 
conducts the Practice Court; James U. Dennis, 
1895, who lectures on Personal Propex-ty, in- 
cluding Bailments ; Edwin T. Dickerson, 1902, 
who lectures on Contracts and Agency; Arthur 
L. Jackson, 1895, who lectures on Conflict of 
Law; Clarence A. Tucker, 1895, who lectures 
on Equity Procedure. 

The following comprise the new faculty of 
the Law School: Alfred Bagby, Jr., Randolph 
Barton, Jr., Carroll T. Bond, J. Wallace Bryan, 
Howard Bryant, W. Calvin Chestnut, Ward 
Baldwin Coe, James U. Dennis, Edwin T. Dick- 
erson, Joseph C. France, Eli Prank, James P.

Academic (St. John's College). 

Judge Walter I. Dawkins, of Baltimore, was 
elected a member of the board of governors and 
visitors of St. John's College, October 1, 1913. 
Judge Dawkins is an alumnus of St. John's 
and has always manifested a keen interest in 
the welfare of his Alma Mater. He is also an 
active member of the alumni association. 

Lieut. D. Murray Cheston, U. S. A., instructor 
in military science and tactics ajid commandant 
of the cadet corps for the past j^ear, has been 
detached by the War Department. Lieut. 
Chauncey St. C. McNeill, Fifteenth Calvary, 
U. S. A., has been detailed to succeed him. 

Among the new students to matriculate at 
St. John's College were Phillips Lee Golds- 
borough, Jr., son of Governor and Mrs. Golds- 
borough, and Pendall Marbury, son of William 
L. Marbury, of Baltimore City. 

The Board of Governors and Visitors of St. 
John's College have appointed Frank C. Mel- 
lon, football, baseball, and basketball star of 
the last few years, as athletic director. He 
will coach the several athletic teams. 



On account of impaired health, Dr. B. Ver- 
non Cecil, for 10 years vice-president of St. 
John's College, and for 17 years connected 
with the faculty of that venerable institution, 
recently tendered his resignation to the Board 
of Governors and Visitors. Professor Cecil is 
a native of Howard county, and graduated 
from St. John's with the class of 1890. Later 
he spent a year at the Johns Hopkins Univer- 
sity, Baltimore, and for a few years thereafter 
taught at different places. For one year he was 
instructor in the preparatory department of 
St. John's. In 1896 he was appointed to the 
chair of physics and chemistry, and in 1903 
was made vice-president of the college. 

Dr. Cecil allvays manifested a deep interest 
in the welfare of his Alma Mater. For years 
he was a moving spirit in the promotion of 
athletics among the cadets, by whom he will 
be much missed. 


The Department of Pharmacy opened on Sep- 
tember 29th and looks forward to a successful 
year's work. The attendance is slightly below 
that of last year but offers good material. 
Three courses have been added to the curricu- 
lum this year. Pharmaceutical, Latin and Phar- 
maceutical Arithmetic for the Junior Class, and 
Pharmaceutical Jurisprudence for the Senior 
Class. Dr. Caspari has charge of the class in 
Latin, Dr. Kelly in arithmetic, Louis J. Burger 
of the class in jurisprudence. Mr. Burger is 
an alumnus of this Department, class of 1893, 
and of the Law Department a few years later, 
and is a member of the law firm of Hisky, Foley 
& Burger on North Charles street. 

In addition, the course in Pharmaceutical 
Technique has been extended, three extra hours 
being given the Senior Class per week under 
Dr. Wolf. 

The Senior and Junior Classes have or- 
ganized, elected their officers and are already 
at work on several matters of interest to the 
students. The officers of the Senior Class are: 
C. L. Armstrong, President ; W. Barle MeClure, 
Vice-President; Frontis Lentz, Secretary; W. 
R. Johnson, Treasurer ; Ross Leader, Sergeant- 
at-Arms ; Miss A. M. Patterson, Historian ; Har- 
vey Todd, Assistant Historian; C. K. Stotle- 
meyer, Editor; C. J. RoAve, Assistant Editor; 
F. Pross, Prophet, and George Ayd, Poet. The 

officers of the Junior Class are : A. L. Sterl- 
ing, President; A. T. Hartman, Vice-President; 
Mr. McMillan, Treasurer ; R. E. Lee, Secretary. 
This class has also selected Entertainment and 
Finance Committees and hope to be able to carry 
out an ambitious class program. At a recent 
meeting of the class the selection of a class 
pennant was progressing well when someone 
suggested that a question mark be placed after 
the figures 1915, breaking up the meeting. 

Dr. William Simon, Emeritus Professor of 
Chemistry, visited the department recently and 
looks splendidly after a vacation spent at his 
cottage in Eaglesmere, Pa. He addressed the 
Senior Class, recalling the early history of the 
school and incidentally mentioned that this was 
the first college of pharmacy in the United 
States to have a compulsory laboratory course 
in chemistry. ■ 

Miss B. Olive Cole, the honor member of the 
class of '13, has been seriously ill of typhoid 
fever at the Church Home and Infirmary but is 
recovering rapidly. 

Mr. D. M. Frierson, of last year's Junior 
Class, passed the South Carolina State Board 
of Pharmacy this summer, attaining the highest 
mark ever made before this Board, and now is 
in business in Anderson, S. C. 

Mr. Goodrum, of this class also, failed to re- 
turn this year to complete the course and is 
employed in North Carolina. 

Mr. R. L. Swain, '09, of Sykesville, Md., 
has been ill in the University Hospital with 
typhoid fever for some time. He is rapidly 

Mr. W. Trueheart Bodiford, '05, recently 
called at the University. He is representing 
the Southern Drug Company of Jacksonville 
and traveling through Southern Florida. He 
has married as every one expected who knew 
him. • 

As we have been unable to get a complete 
mail roll of the subscribers to Old Maryland, 
we would appreciate it if all those who do not 
receive a copy of the November issue, would 
send in their names and addresses to No. 608 
Professional Building, Baltimore, Md. 





The lOTtli annual session of the Medical De- 
partment of the University began its career 
on Wednesday, October 1st, with a wild plunge 
into work. The summer girl is a thing of the 
past, the rows on the lake are no more, the 
bathing suit is laid aside, the fountain pen is 
oiled up and we're ready for the perusal of 
education (from the Latin "ex," meaning 
"out," and the Siamese, "cation," meaning 
"loaf"), hence, "out of the loaf." Things 
opened up with about as large an "audio" as 
have ever draped themselves o'er the seats in 
the various lecture halls, and under as aus- 
picious an occasion as ever graced the walls of 
this venerable institution (applause from the 
gallery and shouts of Amen!). 

The combine (from the Latin "com," mean- 
ing "with," and the Swedish "bindo," mean- 
ing to "tie to," hence, to "tie up," or "get 
in"), with the B. M. C. has given us not only 
an absolute and relative increase in the number 
of eager young minds to be instructed, but, of 
more importance, the increased facilities for 
instructing them, more instructors to do the in- 
structing, and a Maryland General to instruct 
them in. That is to say, the scope of the institu- 
tion has been broadened in every respect. Now- 
a-days it's not so much a question of keeping 
"up," but of keeping "in!" 

The remodeling of the Laboratories (from 
the Greek "labor," meaning, "to monkey 
around," and the Bavarian "atori," meaning 
a "place where one searches for things" — 
hence a place where one monkeys around in 
search of something) has given an increased 
impetus to the work along those lines, for, it 
goes without saying that a Avell equipped lab. 
is the sine qua non for the successful conduc- 
tion of a modern med-school and today, with 
all its modern thought, a dire necessity. 

Sir Bill Osier has been quoted as saying that 
a true scientist could work in a brick bath- 
house — so be it. But we can't all be as those. 
For instance, Pasteur had a well equipped lab., 
as also does Simon Flexner. Tradition says 
the same of Sehaler and Noguchi is well 
looked after, but, if we are to amount to a 
tinkers-whoop it's a 10-to-l shot that the lab. 
should be up to the modern ideas about them. 

As Abe says, "where the hen scratcheth the 
bugs areth. " Selah! 

The second year class is open tg the congrat- 
ulations of the season for the creditable and 
intellectual way in which they have handled 
the "hazing" proposition — modern schools are 
beginning to look at the matter in the light as 
'tis done at, par example, the University of Vir- 
ginia or say Princeton. 

The Randolph Winslow Surgical Society held 
its first meeting of the year at Davidge Hall 
on Wednesday the 15th and elected the fol- 
lowing officers for the ensuing year: R. B. 
Norment, Jr., President; W. S. Walsh, Vice- 
President; A. V. Mordecai, Secretary; R. L. 
Johnson, Treasurer, and P. P. Vinson, His- 
torian. The Society expects quite a pleasant 
and profitable year under the guidance of the 
above mentioned officers and gives promise of 
being quite an important factor in the under- 
graduate department. 

The House-Men are considerably perturbed 
over the fact that they are in many instances 
supposed to be at two, or even, three, places 
at the same time. Much speculation has arisen 
as to whether one can utterly neglect the prin- 
ciples of physics which teach "that two bodies 
cannot occupy the same place synchronously" 
or that unless a person be double-faced, or 
twins, or has an astral-body, or through any, 
as yet, vmdiscoverable means, be both at the 
Maryland General and at the Dispensary and at 
the same time be on an "out-side-case" and 
pari passu (should it be necessary — as it may, 
at times), be at dinner. Well, we'll leave it to 
the principles of Kismet, or A Midsummer 
Nights Dream to decide. (Item — It might be 
mentioned in passing that a series of lectures 
and classes are being conducted for those who 
find time to attend. Climes, too !) 

The frats expect to hang out this year at the 

following addresses : Phi Sigma Kappa, 1222 Mt. 

Royal avenue ; Kappa Psi, 242 W. Hoffman 

street; Phi Chi, 1322 Linden avenue, and Nu 

i Sigma Nu, 618 W. Lombard street. The smok- 



ers this years were of the usual success that 
crowns such efforts, and judging by the diver- 
sity of opinion no effort will be made to say 
which one had the best ; besides, they all are the 
best, "sans puer et sans reproehe." 

The annual reception to the ' ' incomers ' ' was 
teiidered in due form at Davidge Hall by 
the Y. M. C. A. and the attendance was greater 
than in preceding years by quite a few. Var- 
ious speeches by various speakers on various 
topics filled out the earlier part of the pro- 
gram, and then there was a sojournment to the 
recreation room, where the gastronomical pro- 
pensities were satiated (all of which means 
that there Avas a "feed")- If you have an odd 
dollar that is not working you can make a 
"worth-while investment" by joining this or- 
ganization and co-operating in a work that will 
prove worthy of your time and efforts. 

Don't write home to mother and tell her 
that you will be home .Thanksgiving to help 
devastate the turkey — perish the thought; 
you'll be trying to catch up in the lectures 
that have preceded and speculate on why you 
took up medicine as a trade. 

Kappa Phi Fraternity had their smoker on 
Saturday evening, October 18. It was thor- 
oughly enjoyed by all who attended. Among 
the many guests were Drs. Carroll, Owensby, 
Byrnes, Walker, Scott, Rauscbenbaek, Stem, 
Glover and Neely. 

Academic (St. John's College). 

St. John's was opened for the scholastic year

by the Faculty to succeed Dr. B. Vernon Cecil, 
who resigned last summer. Professor Lincoln 
was elected secretary to fill the place left vacant 
by Professor Rippere. 

St. John's defeated Rock HiH 33 to 0, and 
Mt. St. Mary's, 12 to 0. Washington Lee de- 
feated St. John's 19 to and Franklin and 
Marshall, 47 to 0.

year's eleven, has been appointed coach of the 
athletic teams. 

The Y. M. C. A. held a reception on Septem- 
ber 27 for the benefit of the new students. A 
number of addresses were made by members of 
the faculty and students representing the dif- 
ferent departments of the college. Afterwards 
refreshments of ice cream, cake and lemonade 
were served. 

The Reserves were defeased on the 11th of 
October 13 to by the Baltimore City College. 
On the iSthi of October they defeated the Dun- 
ham's School of Baltimore 6 to 0. 

Professor Grove was elected chairman of the 
Executive Committee to succeed Dr. Cecil. Pro- ■

Mr. F. H. M. Dunseith, both of Scranton, Pa.,

Western Pennsylvania Hospital at Scranton. 

Dr. Joshua Webster Hering, class of 1855, of 
Westminster, Md., former Public Service Com- 
missioner, State Comptroller and prominent 
Democrat, died at his home September 23, 1913, 
after a lingering illness, aged 80 years. 

Dr. Hering was born on March 8, 1833, in 
that part of Frederick county which after- 
wards became a part of Carroll. He was a son 
of Daniel S. and Margaret Hering. As a boy 
he lived on a farm and went to the country 
schools of the neighborhood, and later entered 
a country store as a clerk. Not liking the 
work, he turned to the study of medicine, serv- 
ing under Dr. William A. Mathias of West- 
minster. After learning the rudiments of his 
profession, he came to Baltimore and entered 
the University of Maryland, School of Medi- 
cine, graduating in 1855. Upon his graduation 
he returned to Westminster and began the prac- 
tice of medicine, in time becoming the most 
popular physician in the toAvn and surrounding 
country. In 1867 he became cashier of the Na- 
tional Bank of Westminster, with which he was 
connected until his death. He was later elected 
president of the Maryland Bankers' Associa- 
tion. He took and active part in politics, and 
served in the Legislature of 1896-1898, and 
in 1899 was elected Comptroller. He was re- 
elected in 1901, and again in 1907 and 1909. 
and continued in office until the formation of 
the Public Service Commission, when he was 
appointed a commissioner, which position he 
held up to within a short time of his death. 

Dr. Hering was twice married, his first wife 
being Miss Margaret H. Trumbo, who died 
in 1883, leaving four children, three of whom 
are now living, one of them being Dr. Joseph 
T. Hering, class of 1885, a practitioner of medi- 
cine in Baltimore. His second wife was Miss 
Catherine B. Armacost of Carroll County, who 
survives him. 



The Certification of Pharmacists. 

Dear Doctor : — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appoiiited a joint committee which is to thoroughly 
investigate New York pharmacies and certify to the 
worth of those that meet reasonable modern require- 
ments in stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifi- 
cation. The character of work we have been doing 
for more than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly 
and firmly established us in your esteem and favor- 
ably testifies as to our abilities and methods.

SESSION 1913-1914. 

The opening of the thii-ty-second annual ses- 
sion of the Dental Department of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland marks an epoch in the history 
of the Institution. 

The merging of the Dental Department of 
the Baltimore Medical College into this school 
could have little significance, if it had meant 
the joining of forces for the purpose of saving 
one or the other or both institutions from col- 
lapse. Such motive, we are pleased to an- 
nounce, did not prompt the union, nor did it in 
any way figure in the negotiations which finally 
and may we say, happily resulted in the amal- 
gamation. Both schools have been prosperous 
since their inception; both enjoyed in a marked 
degree, an enlarged reputation during the past 
few years, and it is beyond question that both 
might have continued indefinitely and jDros- 
perously as separate and individual institutions. 

What then was the reasonable motive for the 
unification at this time? It was concretely and 
succinctly this: Some years ago, a committee 
was appointed and given the title of the Dental 
Educational Council of America. The member- 
ship of the Council was composed of two repre- 
sentatives of the National Dental Association; 
two representatives of the National Examiners' 
Association; and two representatives of the 
National Association of Dental Faculties. This 
body of Committeemen corresponds to a like 
body which had been created by the American 
Medical Association, and whose operations dur- 
ing the past decade have been felt in the field 
of Medical Colleges of this country during that 

This Council made its first report about three 
years ago. In this, it appealed particularly to 
the profession for fewer but better Dental Col- 
leges. Its I'ecoramendation along this line con- 
tained a veiled hint as to the importance for 

amalgamation where more than one school ex- 
isted in cities of average size. Its suggestions 
went still further, in that it recommended that 
the basis or nucleus of the combined schools 
should be an integral part of the State' Univer- 
sity, Avhere such was feasible, but in cases where 
it was not, then the connection would be with 
a medical or other professional school of repu- 

The wisdom and plausibility of the commit- 
tee's reasoning was apparent, and at this early 
period we are not without example of the 
effects of their line of suggestive reasoning. 
Notable eases of combination antedating ours, 
are to be found in the cities of Louisville, Ky., 
Philadelphia, Pa., Richmond, Va., and Nash- 
ville, Tenn. 

The movement thus started, and the results 
alreadj^ attained point to advancement along 
another direction, that of the standardization 
of Dental Schools, or in other words, the classi-. 
fi cation of institutions whose miSsiOh it is' to 
l^repare individuals for dental jiractice. Evi- 
dence of Avhat is coming in the near future 
along these lines is to be seen in the legislation 
of progressive states of our union which, in a 
few instances, have already attempted to class- 
ify the dental and other professional schools of 
the country, basing such rating mainly on the 
standard of entrance requirements. In the 
face of these facts and conditions, it scarcely 
requires a prophet, nor yet the son of a prophet, 
to foresee the inevitable trend of incidents 
which clearly, point the way to a higher stand- 
ard of efficiency, both in entrance requirements 
for students and facilities for teaching in the 
dental schools of the future. According to a 
trite old adage, "Seeing is believing" and we 
might carry this a little further and say, be- 
lieving brings action, or at least should do so, 
if opportunities are not allowed to pass by 

Your governing bodies saw the trend of 
events, believed in the rational theory of eon- 



solidation of forces, and took the necessary 
action which resulted in bringing about the 
situation in which we find ourselves placed 

How well we have builded remains for the 
future to tell, but the one fact, which stands 
out boldly and gives color to, and encourage- 
ment in the results attained through associa- 
tion, such as we now enjoy, is the claim it gives 
us of at last being alive to the spirit and pro- 
gress of the age. 

To expatiate in a detailed manner on the spe- 
cial advantages to be derived hj the students of 
this institution, through the broadened possi- 
bilities and policies now in operation, might be 
regarded as being the natural and logical se- 
quence of remarks already made. Despite the 
fact that such a field has its peculiar attractions 
and is more or less tempting, I shall refrain at 
this time from going into a discussion of that 
phase of the sub.ject. Please bear in mind that 
results only enter into the measure which draws 
the line between success and failure. Institu- 
tional history, like all history, cannot be made 
in advance. To glorify past achievements is 
well enough in its way, but should have no 
place at this time because of the new era upon 
which we are entering. To speculate in futures 
is risky, if not dangerous ; the present only is 
ours, and if rightly improved, makes good his- 
tory and is at the same time the best possible 
nassport to future progress and renown. We 
have our ideals in mind, and shall endeavor to 
attain a high position in the teaching of a 
sneeial science which shall add to the sum total 
of deserving efforts being put forth in the alle- 
viation and preservation of the general wel- 
fare of humanity. When the record shall have 
been made for the year, may it be within our 
iust rights to paraphrase our opening sentence 
and be able to say: the c]o.sing of the session 
of 1913-1914 has marked an important epoch 
in the history of the Dental Department of the 
Tluiversity of Maryland. 

And now for some special remarks on a point 
which it appears to me to be of some import- 
ance. The necessity of discussing this feature, 
or rather condition, has naturally arisen out of 
the union of the two schools, and has to do 
with the united and harmonious relationship of 
students dui-ing the session. The real nature of 
the problem to be considered may more strik- 

ingly be brought to your attention by com- 
paring our present situation with that of a 
union through marriage, of a widower and 
widow, both having offspring through prior 
alliances. It is even conceivable that under the 
circumstances, a new set of children may be 
added to the group, for that famous bird, 
the stork, has a reisutation for playing freak 
pranks on occasions of si^ecial opportunity. 
With conditions and circumstances, such as we 
have cited, there is room for the exercise of 
masterly diplomacy and tact, if order is to 
be maintained and harmony continuously pre- 
served. One can well imagine' constant bicker- 
ings and internal complications, if not distrac- 
tion and chaos under the circumstances. An 
illustration of the possibilities along this line 
may be given by repeating an old story, which; 
though threadbare, well serves to bring out the 
point we wish to make. The setting is in the 
j^ard of a home such as we have been describ- 
ing. The three sets of children were supposed 
to be playing ; on hearing a commotion, the 
wife went to the window, and after observing 
the situation, gave expression something like 
the following: "0 John, your children and my 
children are licking the devil out of our chil- 

The inferred analogy of the story to our 
present situation needs only to be set forth in 
bald statement to make it fully apparent. 
"Your children," in the present ease, are rep- 
resented by those of the student body who have 
come to XTS from the B. M. C. and other schools : 
"My children" by those who have spent for- 
mer sessions here, and "Our children" by such 
as have entered for the work of the first year 
under the new regime. 

Intimate contact with and close observation 
of young men during the past fifteen years has 
tnusrht me to realize the proneness of aggre- 
frated young manhood to run amuck when sud- 
denly brought together and called upon to face 
new conditions under the stress of strange en- 
vironment and unaccustomed associations. My 
experience in this connection has taught me 
another, and to me a far more important lesson, 
and that is, that even boys are capable of the 
truest manliness, and when appealed to on a 
• innn-to-man basis respond most liberally to 
overv reasonable and fairminded siLo-ffestion 
from those in whom they have implicit confi- 



In the interest of general harmony and 
broad-minded conduct, two things are highly 
desirable, if the session is to measure up to our 
expectations and the good effects of amalgama- 
tion are to be apparent. I am presuming to 
outline a policy for your concerted action, 
which, if followed in spirit and letter, I am 
convinced will mitigate if not entirely elimi- 
nate any threatened friction between the sev- 
eral classes "or parts thereof. 

My suggestive plan places the responsibility 
of conduct almost wholly upon that portion of 
the Senior and Junior classes having previously 
been matriculates in this Department of the 
University of Maryland. I am truly* glad that 
this is so, for in times gone by we have reasoned 
together, and through united action have met 
some rather critical situations with more or 
less success. 

The harmony scheme proposed is on the 
basis of what might be termed a University of 
Maryland House Party, to run for thirty-two 
weeks. The list of hosts, and, may we add 
parenthetically, hostesses, to be composed of 
all students enrolled with us, and those pre- 
viously in attendance at the B. M. C. or else- 
where, together with those matriculating for 
the first year's work, to comprise the list of 
Avelcomed guests. Under such a plan, enter- 
tainers and entertained are bound to observe 
certain social standards and regulations which 
will insure a happy and harmonious dwelling 
together during the term. The natural out- 
growth of such a relationship must inevitably 
result in the establishment and jnaintenance of 
a proper deference and thoughtful considera- 
tion of feelings, one toward the other. The 
unwritten social law, which prohibits one from 
giving offense in his own home is inversely and 
equally binding on the guest, and demands a 
proper appreciation and response to every 
effort made in his behalf. A "House Party" 
could scarcely be regarded as a success, if hosts 
were to band themselves together for purposes 
of offense, and guests likewise meet for pur- 
poses of defense, or vice versa. The hint herein 
contained, T am sure, needs no elaboration fur- 
ther than to say that Ave are anxious to effect a 
true amalgamRtion, and, as some of you already 
know, an amalgam represents two or more ele- 
ments, which must be brought together in close 
and intermingling contact, the identity of each 

being lost in the other. There can be no 
cementing of elements together; it must be a 
process of absorption, and that even to satura- 

The one essential thing aimed at by thus out- 
lining a possible course of conduct for you to 
adopt is to stimulate thought on the subject, 
and, if what has been presented will furnish 
the basis for a fuller consideration of the mat- 
ter at your hands, I shall feel amply repaid for 
the time spent and effort made in addressing 
these remarks to you at this time. My sincere 
conviction is that it is the part of wisdom for 
you to establish a general policy to work by, 
and set an idealistic standard to live up to, and 
when this shall have been done, whether my 
plan or one of your own is adopted, there 
need he no fears as to an ultimate and satis- 
factory outcome of our present amalgamated 

And now for some words of felicitation. 
First of all we welcome yoii individually and 
collectively ; those who have returned after 
having spent other sessions with us ; those who 
through choice or circumstance have come 
from other institutions ; and those who through 
selection are making their initial bow in mat- 
ters professional. Please let me admonish you 
that life in any sphere is a serious business, and 
this is peculiarly true of the work you are 
undertaking. Just at this period in our history 
the profession of dentistry is undergoing an 
evolution, and the enlarged possibilities in this 
special field of science are already visibly ap- 
parent, so that it is not unreasonable to claim 
for our profession opportunities equal to, if not 
surpassing, those of any other special calling. 
In order to be able to meet successfully the de- 
veloping conditions and opportunities now un- 
folding before us, men of special culture and 
learning must be raised up to maintain and 
promulgate the onward trend of events which 
are shaping an expanding field for our oper- 
ations. You come for special training, in a spe- 
cial science, at a time when various arms of 
the National Government are giving recogni- 
tion to the dentist; at a time when the import- 
ance of his work is being given broad pitblicity 
before the laity through Oral Hygiene Con- 
gresses and conventions, through which means 
philanthropists are becoming interested, and in 
a few instances are giving liberally of their 



means to aid in bringing relief to the indigent 
poor; at' a period when State and City authori- 
ties are beginning to recognize the economic 
value of our services to the future citizen, as 
represented by the millions of public school 
children throughout our land; at a time when 
members of the profession are specializing in 
prohylaxis, oral surgery, orthodontia, crown 
and bridge work, and analgesia ; at a time when 
members of our profession are taking their 
place alongside the medical interne in those 
humanitarian institutions of every civilized 
country, the hospitals ; at a time when the best 
skill and science of our day is being utilized in 
the manufacture of special materials, devices 
and equipment to facilitate us in our work. 

All these signs of opening opportunity are 
just now in their incipiency, and with this 
knowledge in view, do you marvel at my pre- 
vious statement, that men of special culture 
and learning must be raised up to maintain and 
promulgate the advance movement? 

The allotted period of your training, if util- 
ized to the very fullest, will equip you only 
partially for the tremendous tasks of the 
future. Little more than a solid foundation 
can be laid here, but it shall be the aim and 
purpose of our faculty to so ground you in the 
fundamental principles underlying the struc- 
ture, which you shall later build, that neither 
lack of incentive nor lack of efScieney shall 
retard you in the upward march to future pro- 
gress and renown. 


By Judge Henry D. Harlan, Dean, Law 

"Old Maryland," continuing the splendid 
optimism of Doctor Cordell and his ardent and 
unselfish devotion to his Alma Mater and add- 
ing to these the strength, vigor and enthusiasm 
that valuably belong to younger life and the re- 
vivifying force of new methods, ideas, sym- 
pathies and aspirations, is entering upon a 
career that offers great possibilities for useful- 
ness in connection with the future progress 
and advancement of the University of Mary- 
land and each of its departments. 

That it may fulfill its highest usefulness it 
must have the cordial support of the University 

authorities, regents and professors, as well as 
its alumni and students. 

It proposes a program that offers oppor- 
tunity for the widest co-operation and that 
promises features of interest to all; and I be- 
speak for the university journal under its new 
management an enthusiastic and generous 
support, particularly from the law department, 
its professors, students and alumni. 

The Home for Widows and Orphans was dear 
to the heart of the late Dr. Eugene F. Cordell. 
It would, therefore, have been gratifying to 
him to have known of the following communi- 
cation : 

"I am herewith sending you (Mrs. Cor- 
dell), a small contribution toward the 
maintenance of the Home. I hope that ' 
you may be able to continue this beautiful 
charity in which Dr. Cordell was so in- 
tensely interested.

occasionally leads to unthought of improve- 
ments. Has Maryland done her part as an 
educational institution? Does she occupy the 
place in the educational world she should? 
These are pertinent questions. Nobody will 
gainsay that each department has given to the 
community, the State and the Nation, men of 
the greatest value; men whose services cannot 
be computed in dollars and cents. But, even 
so, have we done our full duty toward educa- 
tion ? Undoubtedly Maryland has made the best 
use of her opportunities, and has always striven 
to keep in the forefront of educational advance. 
No graduate need be ashamed of his diploma. 
Nevertheless, the editors feel that the institu- 
tion's usefulness can be materially advanced 
through a frank discussion of topics concerning 
the advancement of the interests of the Univer- 
sity. The quickest, easiest and best method, if 
you have something to suggest, is to publish it 
in "Old Maryland. " How are we to better con- 
ditions, if we never hear complaints? There- 
fore, "Old Maryland" desires to stand shoulder 
to shoulder with every agency working for the 
uplift of the University of Maryland, and 
freely offers her pages to those interested in 
creating and crystallizing any movement which 
promises to be of service. 


The success of "Old Maryland" will be in 
direct proportion to the co-operation received 
by the editors from graduate and undergrad- 
uate. "We have not entered lightly into the 
publication of ' ' Old Maryland, ' ' but thoroughly 
realize the difficulties and pitfalls which we 
shall encounter, and are determined to make it 
a telling force in the life of the University. 
Simply because a man has received his diploma, 
has left the portals of his Alma Mater and is 
launched upon the sea of life does not signify 
that he has lost all interest and love in her 
success. In most instances this apathy comes 
about from lack of some avenue for the 
graduate to voice his sentiments concerning 
improvements in the conduction of affairs of 
his Alma Mater. In oi'der to supply this need, 
the editors not only offer the pages of "Old 
Maryland" to our Alumni, but solicit state- 
ments of opinion. A very simple hint let drop 

Encouraging News for the Practice Court. 

Mr. Randolph Barton, Jr., in charge of the 
Practice Court of the Law Department, has 
great hopes for the future of our embryo law- 
yers. When interviewed at his office recently, 
he expressed surprise and gratification at the 
admirable manner in which our students pre- 
sented their cases before the Practice Court. 
"Indeed," said he, "I have been more thai) 
once won over to the opposite side by the forci- 
ble arguments of the students when I had al- 
ready made up my mind that. there was but one 
possible way for the case to be decided. There 
Avere certain men that argued their points 
so well, I would, without hesitation, have 
been willing to let them try a similar case for 
me in the Baltimore City Court." Mr. Barton 
was also pleased at the intelligent way in which 
the students attending the trials voted upon 
the questions of law at the close of each case. 
They have rarely failed to grasp the vital points 
at issue. 




Surely such honest praise from oue \vho has 
the interests of tlie Practice Court so close at 
heart should spur us on to redoubled effort to 
make a name for oi^rselves and bring credit to 
the University. 

The Practice Court is contemplating some 
changes in the near future in order to give 
each student opportunity to try more cases 
during the year. At present there is hardly 
time for a man to try more than one or two 
cases in a year owing to the large number of 
students enrolled, lack of court rooms and the 
time devoted to the work. 

It is proposed to double the time now allotted 
by holding court two nights a week instead of 
one as heretofore. It will be so arranged that 
students assigned to the courts for one night 
M'ill not be required to attend the work of the 
second night, and vice versa. The discussions 
in pleading which take up the first half hour 
are to be duplicated on both nights. 

Mr. Barton has not fully formulated his 
plans for this work as yet, for there are many 
details to settle upon before the new scheme can 
be put in practice ; but it is hoped that the diffi- 
culties involved may easily be surmounted, and

greater opportunity to exercise their forensic 


The Hon. Mr. Eli Prank offers the suggestion 
that the reading pages of "Old Maryland" 
could be made more useful if members of the 
several departments would occasionally fur- 
nish technical subjects of general interest in 
popular style, thereby making the topic accessi- 
ble not only to members of the several depart- 
ments, but also to the general public; e. g., 
"The Relation of Dentistry to the Digestive 
System and the General Health." A capital 
idea! The editors are in hearty accord with 
Mr. Frank and will make every endeavor to 
supply the articles of the above character. 


"Old Maryland" was founded ten years ago 
by Dr. hlugene h\ Cordell, of the medical de- 
partment 01 tlie University. Although receiv-_ 
mg iittle encouragement and working alone for 
many years, Dr. Cordell strove to Dring into 
being a "University Spirit." In order to 
briug this more speedily to fruition he founded 
and edited '"Old Maryland," a periodical, 
which from the very first became a force in 
creating new policies in the University. At 
such a receut period as ten years ago each de- 
partment held aloof from the other. There was 
nothing in common. It was Dr. Cordell 's am- 
bition to so weld the interests of the several 
departments that the University might, through 
greater unity, assume its proper sphere in the 
educational world. 

"Old Maryland" has not heretofore meant 
as much to the undergraduate body as it should. 
Perhaps the students failed to appreciate that 
the columns of the paper were always open to 
them for publishing those events and doings 
which are dear to the heart of every college 
man which are required to stimulate and to 
keep alive an active interest among the students 
of the various departments. All the students of 
the University should awaken to the fact that 
"Old Maryland" is their own paper, and es- 
sentially for their benefit. It is our object 
to continue the work of Dr. Cordell in welding 
the University more compactly together so that 
it will represent a unit^. We desire to keep 
up and raise still higher the tone and prestige 
of the University. Each department is to be 
more completely represented than heretofore 
in each issue. 

Then let us all work together for a greater 
solidarity of the associated departments of our 
University. Let us tear down class cliquish- 
ness and departmental factionalism and build 
up a powerful "University Spirit" which shall 
give us a Samsonlike strength to accomplish 
great things for the University of Maryland. 

Nothing can do more for the practical work- 
ing of this unifying process than a wide-awake, 
broad-minded University Paper devoted to the 
interests of all departments, social and intel- 
lectual. To make this paper and its work a 



success, we need the hearty and serious co- 
operation of the whole of the Faculty, Alumni 
and Student Body. 

We must make "Old Maryland" a paper to 
be sought after, not only for its social features 
and unifying standard raising qualities, but 
also because of its true worth and value in 
bringing help of a more serious intellectual 
nature before the students. 

We are undertaking to publish: 

Leading articles of practical value to all 
the students by members of the faculty and 
other public men. 

Shorter topics of educational worth. 

Encouraging reports of student work in 
every department. 

JNews items of class and department ac- 

The latest official announcements from 
faculty headquarters. 

An open quiz box. 

An open column entitled, "Quips," 
where we will be glad to receive helpful 
' suggestions and criticisms of our work. 

Articles and news items from members 
of the Alumni. 

Personal items. 

Items of general interest. 

With the December issue "Old Maryland" 
is increasing the number of its pages from six- 
teen to twenty, and confidently expects to 
publish a thirty-two page journal in January, 
provided ■ we have the pi'oper backing of the 
students. We cannot do all this without the 
personal support of every student, member of 
the teaching force, and the Alumni of the en- 
tire University. It is absolutely necessary to 
have financial backing for the actual expenses 
of the journal. The Board of Editors receives 
no compensation for their services, but the 
printer will not work for the love of the Uni- 
versity. We, therefore, expect every student 
of the University to lend us his material aid 
in the form of a subscription to "Old Mary- 
land," at $1.00 a year 

We will greatly appreciate advertisements 
of a high grade and are always ready to re- 
ceive news of interest to the students. It's 
your paper. Help us to make it a success. 


It has been suggested that a memorial tablet 
be placed in Davidge Hall to the memory of the 
late Dr. Eugene F. Cordell. A more fitting place 
could not be found for the tablet, as it was 
tlierg Dr. Cordell spent many of his last hours. 

Feeling that many of Dr. Cordell's friends 
are desirous of contributing toward this tablet, 
we take this opportunity of anouncing that 
a subscription list has been opened. The fol- 
lowing have subscribed: 

Dr. A. M. Shipley, $25. 

Dr. Nathan Winslow, $10. 

Dr. D. W. Cathell, $10.

The editors of "Old Maryland" learn with 
the utmost concern that there is a rift in the 
skies of the undergraduate body of the law 
department. The controversy hinges upon the 
class organizations. The old university boys 
feelthat they should be given the presiden- 
cies of the several classes, and the new students 
from the Baltimore Law School believe they 
should be accorded more generous recognition. 
We would suggest that both sides give some. 
Having been students ourselves, we know how 
dear to the heart of the student are the class 
officers, but in this case more is at stake than 
mere personal gratification. The University 
of Maryland is coming into its own. A new 
spirit permeates the atmosphere. Everybody 
is hopeful of seeing a new and grander edifice 
rise from the groundwork already planted. 
There is a spirit of co-operation between the 



various faculties, which until only recently was 
lacking. A spirit of pride in our old University 
pervades students, faculties and alumni alike. 
Such being the case, the editors of ' ' Old Mary- 
land" look upon the unsettled status of the 
undergraduates of the law department as a 
snake which should be scotched before it has 
time to raise its head. Students of this de- 
partment should lay aside their personal griev- 
ances, especially at this time, and unite in en- 
hancing the prestige of "Old Maryland," as 
only with united forces is our future assured. 
We would respectfully suggest that an arbitra- 
tion committee composed of three members, 
one from the old Baltimore Law School, one 
from the old University of Maryland Law 
Faculty, and a disinterested outside party, be 
constituted to hear the arguments of the op- 
posing factions, and that the factions agree to 
abide by the decision as handed down by the 
committee. This proposition seems to offer a 
feasible solution of the difficulty. 

if the above plan be not agreeable an ad- 
mirable alternative would be the election of 
two sets of officers for each class. The day and 
night classes have nothing in common, save 
attending the same university and lectures by 
the same men. They are as absolute a physical 
division as hills and rivers. The members of 
each division seldom come into contact with 
each other, do not know each other when they 
meet accidentally, have practically nothing in 
common, and are to all intents and purposes 
two distinct schools. The division having the 
largest number naturally outvotes the other 
and elects the officers. Therefore, we respect- 
fully submit that the day and night classes 
elect their own oiScers, however, not doing 
away with the fact that they are senior, inter- 
mediate and junior classes of the University of 

"United, we stand; divided, we fall." 


It is rumored that Mr. Charles H. Grasty, 
editor of the Baltimore Sun, is to deliver a 
series of lectures upon current topics to the stu- 
dent body. A bully idea ! The Regents are to 
be congratulated upon the inauguration of such 
a series, but especially in obtaining one so well 
versed in public affairs. By the bye, it oceui's 
to the editors of "Old Maryland," that the 

same Mr. Grasty is excellent timber for a Uni- 
versity of Mar'yland LL.D. Merely a sugges- 
tion, but worth while considering. 

Why not a combined graduation banquet, in- 
stead of the small medical department affair? 
Surely a large affair of this character is a good 
advertisement and would impress the speakers 
and public with the magnitude of the institu- 

"A University of Maryland." Everybody 
should get behind Dr. Fell and push along the 
idea of "A University of Maryland." 

' ■ Old Maryland ' ' wishes that all of its read- 
ers may enjoy a very merry and gladsome 



The following official announcement from the 
Secretary's office has been eagerly awaited by 
the Senior Law Class. 

The subject for Thesis for the scholastic 
year of 1913-14 is: "A written argument for 
or against the constitutionality of the Webb- 
Kenyon Bill." 

A member of Congress from Maryland has 
been requested to furnish the University with 
sufficient copies of the bill to supply each mem- 
ber of the Senior Class with a copy. 

Each thesis must be typewritten and contain 
not less than three thousand Avords. It must 
represent original investigation on the part of 
the student. In no case will a mere compila- 
tion of authorities be accepted. Theses must 
be handed in on or before May 1, 1914. Each 
writer must attach to it a sealed envelope con- 
taining his name. 

The attention of the students is called to the 
fact that the Faculty will require a high stand- 
ard of excellence in the theses. 

Mr. Samuel Waut announces for the month 
of December the folJoAving official schedule of 
class quizzes for the Law Department: 
Junior Class — • 

Tuesday, 5-6 and 6-7 P. M. 
Friday, 7-8 P. M. 
Intermediate Class — 
Tuesday, 4-5 P. M. 
Thursday, 4-5 P. M. 
Friday, 5-6 P. M. 



Senior Class — 

Monday, 5-6 P. M. 
Wednesday, 4-5 P. M. 

These quizzes are a part of the regular work 
of the Law Department. Being ofticial, there 
is no charge whatever connected with them. 
It is hoped that the students will avail them- 
selves more generally of this opportunity to 
receive special help on difficult problems that 
confront them than they have heretofore. 

Mr. Randolph Barton, Jr., will begin his 
course of three or four lectures on Legal Ethics 
to the Senior Class on Friday, December 12. 
They will be given in the Intermediate Class 
Hall from 8.00 to 8.30 P. M., just prior to the 
session of the Practice Court. The Pleading- 
exercises win continue as usual during the same 
half hour in the Anatomical Hall for the bene- 
fit of the Intermediate Class. 

At a recent meeting of the Faculty and Board 
of Instructors of the Law Department the fol- 
lowing resolutions were passed, viz: 

Resolved, That the petition of the Senior 
Class for exemption from the subjects of Bank- 
ing Law and Medical Jurisprudence be refused 
because it was not deemed feasible or proper to 
grant the request. 

Resolved, That a committee consisting of the 
Dean and Messrs. Frank and Rawls, be and it 
is appointed to select the Committee on Thesis 
of membei's of the Bar and to determine the 
method of examination of theses before sub- 
mission to such outside committee. 

Resolved, That the students be requested to 
make monthly reports of their attendance on 
lectures, beginning December 1st, on blanks to 
be supplied for that purpose. 

Resolved, That the members of each class be 
requested to inaugurate and enforce an honor 
system and to that end to appoint committees 
for putting the system into effect. 

Resolved, That the subject for the thesis for 
this year be as follows : That the students sub- 
mit an argument for or against the constitu- 
tionality of the Webb-Kenyon Bill. 

If ought's to be done 

Let's do it, once, well; 
If ought there's to speak, — 

Think twice — 'fore we tell.

Academic Day was observed by the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, November 11, 1913, at the 
Westminster Presbyterian Church, Payette and 
Greene streets, to commemorate the one hun- 
dred and twenty-fourth anniversary of the 
opening of St. John's College, the department 
of arts and sciences of the University. A fea- 
ture of the occasion was the presentation to 
the University by Dr. John G. Hammeter of 
Prof. Adolph Schmidt, privy councilor to the 
German Emperor and jjrofessor of medicine at 
the University of Halle, upon whom the 
honorary degree of doctor of laws was con^ 
ferred. The faculties of the University were in 
full academic dress. The full brass band from 
St. John's College at Annapolis furnished music 
for the occasion. The ceremonies began at 
10.30 o'clock and lasted until the early after- 
noon. Besides the students from St. John's 
College, three hundred in number, there were 
present the students from the various depart- 
ments of the University, members of the 
faculties, alumni, and regents. The principal 
orator of the day was Mr. Charles H. Grasty, 
of The Sun, whose theme was, ' ' The New Force 
Behind the New Freedom." Dr. Randolph 
Winslow, professor of surgery in the University, 
read a memorial paper upon the late Dr. Eu- 
gene F. Cordell. Following the ceremonies in 
Westminster Church, a luncheon was served 
at the Hotel Enlerson, at which about forty 
guests were present. Provost Fell presided 
as toastmaster. The menu Avas as follows :

On motion of Dr. Sadtler, duly seconded, and 
unanimously passed, it was resolved that where- 
as the Alumni of this University are alive to 
the advantages of co-operation among, and 
unification of the state educational agencies, 
that the Executive Committee of the General 
Alumni Association heartily endorse the action 
of Dr. Pell in his efforts to create sentiment for 
a State University, and tenders him the sup- 
port of the General Alumni Association in this 
movement. The Secretary was instructed to 
forward a copy of this resolution to Provost 

That the first of a series of smokers to foster 
University spirit, and the State University idea, 
be held on December 10th, 1913; tha,t arrange- 
ments be made for these meetings to be ad-

Hon. Walter I. Dawkins be, and they are here- 
by designated as a committee to secure the 
attendance of Governor Goldsborough, at the 
smoker to be held on December 10th, with the 
request that the Governor deliver an address 

of about one-half liour in length, giving his 
views on the subject of a State University. 
The Secretary was instructed to forward this 
resolution to Dr. Fell with a letter urging him 
to secure the attendance of the faculties at this 
smoker. The Secretary was also instructed to 
write State Senator W. M. Maloy to address 
this meeting.

Doctors Randolph Winslow, Arthur M:. Ship- 
ley, J. Mason Hundley and Frank Martin have 
just returned from Chicago, having spent from 
November 11 to November 14 there, attending 
the meetings of the "Clinical Congress of Sur- 
geons of North America," and of the "First 
Convocation of the American College of Sur- 

The latter organization, the A. C. of S., was 
founded sometime ago in order that some 
method might be obtained whereby the practice 
of surgery could be restricted to men fully 
qualified to operate. 

Drs. R. Winslow, Shipley, Hundley and Mar- 
tin, were made Fellows of the A. C. of S., which 
is equivalent in the United States, to being a 
member of the British R. C. of S. 

Drs. H, M. Fitzhugh, '97, of Westminster, 
George Colbourn, '11, W. C. Chowning, '04, 
were recently visitors to the University. 

Dr. Asa Thurston, '09, of North Carolina, 
also stopped in at the hospital ou his way home 
from New York, where he has been taking a 
general post-graduate course at the N. Y. Post- 
Graduate School. 

We are glad to report that Prof. R. Dorsey 
Coale, Dean of the Medical Department, who 
has been ill at his home, is convalescing.

Dr. William Culbert Lyon, class of 1907, an 
assistant surgeon in the United States Navy, 
and formerly of 1518 Mt. Royal avenue, this 
city, is stationed at Galveston, Texas, where he 
is chief medical officer of the new recruiting 
district of the United States Navy in Southern 
Texas. He is in charge of the medical exami- 
nations, and passes upon the physical fitness of 
all applicants for eidistment. This district has 
been made necessary on account of the size of 
Texas, and by reason of the great number of 
desirable recruits that are obtained in the State. 
Galveston has been selected as the headquarters 
by reason of its being the chief seaport city. 
Prior to his entering this arm of the service. Dr. 
Lyon served in the army, from which he re- 
signed to enter the navy. He is enthusiastic 
over his present work, and it is largely due to 
his energetic application to duty that the Gal- 
veston district is forging to the front as an 
enlistment center. The Navy Department is to 
be congratulated on having the services of so 
energetic and able a man.

Mr. Morris A. Soper, class of 1895, of the 
Marlborough Apartments, this city, was ap- 
pointed chief judge of Baltimore City by Gov- 
ernor Goldsborough, November 14, 1913, to 
succeed Judge Henry D. Harlan, dean of the 
law department of the University, whose resig- 
nation as chief judge will take place January 
1, 1914. Mr. Soper will serve until the next 
general election two years hence, when a judge 
will be elected for the full term of 15 years. 
Judge Harlan's term would have expired in 

Mr. Soper was born in Baltimore, his father 
having been the late Samuel J. Soper, the auc- 
tioneerv He was educated in the public schools 
of the city, was graduated in 1890 from the 
Baltimore City College and in 1893 from Johns 
Hopkins University. He was graduated from 
the University of Maryland School of Law in 
1895. Mr. Soper has always taken an active 
interest in politics and was the Republican can- 
didate for Attorney-General in the campaign 
which resulted in the election of Governor 
Goldsborough. On April 2, 1912, he was ap- 
pointed a member of the Police Board, suc- 
ceeding Colonel C. Baker Clotworthy, class of 
1889. On June 6th he became president of the 

In announcing the appointment of Mr. Soper, 
Governor Goldsborough made the following 
statement : 

' ' The appointment to the office of chief judge 
of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City, to 
become vacant by the resignation of Judge 
Harlan, has been offered to and accepted by 
Mr. Morris A. Soper. 

"I believe the people of Maryland and Bal- 
timore are fortunate in having the mantle of 
Judge Harlan fall upon so capable a man and 
able a lawyer as Mr. Soper, who admittedly is 
of splendid poise and judicial temperament. 
He surrenders a lucrative practice, one yield- 
ing a return greater than the salary of the 
office to which he will be appointed.

by Mr. Soper January 1, 1914, the date upon 
which the resignation of Judge Harlan becomes 



Writing in the Evening Sun, Mr. Charles 
J. Bonaparte, ex- Attorney-General of the United 
States, says: 

"Governor Goldsborough's choice of Mr. 
Morris A. Soper to succeed Chief Judge Harlan 
has been generally and deservedly approved. 
Old men, such as the writei', are prone to think 
of Mr. Soper as a young lawyer, but he is really 
at the beginning of that age when a man can be 
most useful on the bench and, in fact, is a 
good deal older than Judge Harlan was when 
the latter succeeded the late Chief Judge 

"Mr. Soper has emphatically 'made good' 
in the several positions of public trust which 
he has held, and almost our only reason to re- 
gret his elevation is his loss to the work of tlie 
Police Board. That a man of his growing prac- 
tice and professional success should be willing 
to accept a judgeship is somewhat unexpectedly 
gratifying, and, in fairness, it must be con- 
sidered as, in some measure, an offset to Judge 
Harlan's retirement in determining the neces- 
sity for an increase in our judges' salaries." 

"Old Maryland" desires to take this occa- 
sion to congratulate Mr. Soper upon his eleva- 
tion to the bench.

Miss Clara D. Noyes, R. N., superintendent of 
the Bellevue Training School, New York City. 
The Senior class attended in a body. Refresh- 
ments were served. 

Miss Betty Butts, class of 1913, has been ap- 
pointed Assistant Superintendent of the Emer- 
gency Hospital, Easton, Md. Miss Jane Garner, 
class of 1911, is superintendent. Miss Hender- 
son, class of 1901, has been appointed assistant 
to Miss Flanigan Superintendent of the DeSota 
Sanatorium, Jacksonville, Fla. 

Miss Annie Drye, class of 1910, was operated 
on for appendicitis, at the hospital a few days 
ago, and is doing nicely. 

Miss EvaChapline, class of 1909, is ill at the 

Miss Brian, class of 1907, was operated on at 
the hospital last week. 


The President of the Junior Class, Mr. Black- 
mer, is at present ill af the University Hospital 

Dr. Mitchell paid us a pretty compliment, 
when he said that his greatest source of pleas- 
ure is as a teacher of medical students, for 
which we thanked him by a generoiis applause. 
May he long be with us! 

J. I. Justice, better known to his class-mates 
as "Squire" Justice, is. the famous gas blower 
from West Virginia. Said gentleman has 
served several terms in the West Virginia Leg- 
islature where he became known as a great 
foe of graft. At present, he spends his Winters 
studying medicine ; in the Summer, he sells in- 
surance — and, by the way, the "Squire's" mar- 

Who said "Glee Club?" 

The Spanish-American War Treaty has not 
yet been signed owing to the fact that Generals 
Quevedo and Eby have not opened negotiations. 

It seems that this is a suitable opportunity of 
welcoming the students of the former Baltimore 
Medical College. They have been in our midst 
for a period of about two months, and a finer 
group of young men would indeed be hard to 
find ; men in every sense of the word. 

It is indeed a pleasure to welcome them. The 
amalgamation has been of signal benefit to us ; 
first, because of the association; second, the 
keen competition. 

They will all be a credit to our Alma Mater, 
and the time is not far off when their doings 
will reflect to the glory of the University of 
Maryland. Welcome ! 

On November 1, 1913, at a meeting of the 
Junior Class, the following officers were elected 
for the ensuing year : President, Mr. Joselyn 
W. Blackmer; Vice-President, John D. Robin- 
son; Secretary, Richard B. Kelly; Treasurer, 


William C. McKenna ; Sergeant-at-Arms, R. W. 
Johnson. The Honor Committee — Leroy Lewis, 
Chairman ; Russel B. Street, Oscar V. Linhardt, 
John C. Woodland, George H. Dorsey. At this 
meeting it was also decided that the Junior 
Class hold an informal dance some time be- 
tween Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the 
following committee was appointed: L. R. 
Porter, Chairman; R. H. Jenkins, G. Fritz, M. 
E. Jones, H. A. Moses. At the present writing, 
the committee has rented Keating 's Hall on 
North Avenue, near 9th street. Dancing will 
commence at 9 P. M. Several members of the M 
Faculty have been invited. 

On the 7th inst., H. Goldman was elected as 
associate editor of "Old Maryland" by the 
Junior Class. 




We certainly must hand Mr. Rush, of Acci- 
dent, Md., a lot of credit. He "shore is some 
politician, by heck!" 

Eugene Joshua Karl Zeller Avas assaulted on 
the 17th, and forcibly given a hair cut, so that 
he now appears to us, with his hat off, like a 
fair imitation of September Morn. 

The first half of the class has decided that 
there are many more, indeed very man}' more 
diabetics in Baltimore than they had previously 
thought. Dr. Whitney has disillusioned them. 
Also there are a good many sore fingers in the 

The lecture-rooms are hot on warm days, and 
on cold days are freezing. The colored gentle- 
man should be instructed to furnish the require- 


The Law men did not show a very crowded 
l)halanx on Academic Day, but what they 
lacked in numbers they amply made up by a 
spirited leadership in class yells, which may be 
significant of future oratorical flights in for- 
ensic debate. 

The Law Department is to be congratulated 
on the new system of handling the Practice 
Court, brought to us by our uniting with the 
Baltimore Law School. The new Practice; 
Court has abolished the lengthy examination of 
witnesses, supplies a prepared statement of 
facts in its stead, and confines its worlv strictly 
to the argument of the prayers prepared by 
each side. Fifteen minutes ai-e allotted to 
counsel of each side, thus bringing out the sub- 
stance of the ease within an hour, and keeping 
the trial from dragging out toward midnight 
as was formerly the ease. The acting jiadges 
lend suggestions to the attorneys, act as a jm'y 
in settling the facts, and explain the difficult 
technical points at the close of each case. The 
members of the class appointed to each court 
sit as a bank of judg'es to decide the law of the 
ease as brought out by the prayers. 

Mr. Randolph Barton, Jr., supervises the 
work of the courts, assisted by Messrs. G. 
Ridgely Sappington, Forest Bramble, Samuel 
Want and German H. Emory, who preside as 
judges over the four divisions. 

A set of trial rules with regard to the filing 
of papers, and the working of the court, keeps 
the men on their mettle, and while perhaps a 
trifle irksome at times, the student body appre- 
ciates the fact that close application to the 
work of the court will give them much material 
benefit in the two years devoted to the work. 

Credit is due to Mr. Benj. R. Powell, for his 
painstaking work as Court Clerk, in solving the 
man}^ riddles of amateur brief filing. We trust 
he may be saved many grey hairs by a little 
additional care on our part in preparing and 
filing papers. 

The Secretary of the State Board of Law 
Examiners, Col. John Hinkley, reported an en- 
rollment of ninety-two applicants for admission 
to the State Bar this Fall. Our hopes and fel- 
low-feeling go out to those of our number who 
have so recently passed through this ordeal. 

We should all of us appreciate the -work of 
Mr. Samuel Want in promoting the interests of 
the University by undertaking to raise money 
for painting the interior of Davidge Hall. We 
trust we may soon have sufficient funds to ac- 
complish this object. 

On Saturday, November 22, the Faculty and 
Tutorial Staff of the Baltimore Law School held 
a farewell banquet at the Hotel Rennert. After 
a very excellent menu had been enjoyed by 
those present the Hon. Alfred S. Niles, as toast- 
master, led the speechmaking. 

After many interesting addresses had been 
given, reviewing the various phases of the 
school's work, the keynote of the evening was 
struck in a ringing speech by G. Ridgely Sap- 
pington, Esq., who highly commended the ac- 
tion of the Law School in uniting with the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, saying it was a big step 
in the right direction toward raising the stand- 
ard of the legal profession in the State of 
Mai'yland. With siich hearty co-operation on 
the part of our newly acquired co-laborers the 
University of Maryland cannot fail to rise to 
greater heights than ever before. 



■ Certain law lecturers spoke to empty benches 
the evening of Academic Day, and one of them 
lost a lecture by trading off nights with another 
professor. It seems that loss due to "swap- 
ping" is not alone confined to horse lovers, 
Question : Who failed to notify that Law Fac- 
ulty of suspension of lectures? 

It was sad to notice the family rupture in the 
Intermediate Class on the night of Nov. 14th, 
after the apparent amicable amalgamation of 
the two class forces some time previous. Dr. 
Fell's recent remarks on "Bi-ethern dwelling 
together in unity" without doubt fell on deaf 

Messrs. Hepborn and Haydon announce a 
new syllabus on Partnerships which is said to 
cover the subject in a most thorough manner.

We hope the faculty will get behind the 
pharmaceutical associations before the meeting 
of the next Legislature and use their influence 
to have a bill framed and passed compelling 
applicants for the "State Board" to be a phar- 
macy school graduate. 

Judging from the small number of senior stu- 
dents who attended the exercises at Westmins- 
ter Church we suggest that the faculty change 
the time to 2 P. M. or that the seniors change 
their "brand." 

"Knock" the "Knocker" and work for a 
State University as suggested by Mr. Grasty. 


St. John's College defeated its old rival, 
Washington College, in their annual game of 
football, Saturday, November 22, by a score of 
13 to 6. The game kas played at Oriole Park 
before a number of spectators. The line-up 
was as follows: 

The membership of the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association is much larger than ever be- 
fore. Get in and swell the numbers. 

The Y. M. C. A. aims at the development of 
the all- 'round man, and is behind every good 
movement of the University. The Association 
is the one organization that is cosmopolitan in 
the scope of its work. It is non-sectarian; 
every man who is interested in the development 
and uplift of the University should be a mem- 
ber. If you have not already joined, see a 
member and affiliate at once. We need you. 

The University needs; a glee club, an athletic 
organization, a weekly publication; also a 
weekly assembly where the different depart- 
ments can meet ; and more University spirit. 
Through an organization that is cosmopolitan. 
these things can be brought about. Are you 
one to help? 

A series of six addresses on ' ' The Fundamen- ■ 
tals of Life" has been arranged for and are 
held in Davidge Hall on Thursday evenings. 
Three of these meetings have already been 
held. On December 4th, Dr. Lynn Hough, 
will speak on ' ' The Strategy of The Cross, ' ' and 
on December 11th, Dr. Harris E. Kirk on "The 
Call to Sacrifice." You need to attend these 
closing meetings. 



On November 16th, Robert E. Speer addressed 
a mass meeting of students in the First Pres- 
byterian Church. About 400 students were 
present. In America there is no stronger 
speaker to college and university men than Mr. 
Speer. Dr. Hiram Woods presided at this meet- 

The reception arranged for by the Univer- 
sity Bible Study Club, October 17th, vras a de- 
cided success. More than 200 men were pres-

kindness. Governor Goldsborough and others 

Our Bible Class, led by Mr. Murray, is doing 
fine work. About 50 men are enrolled. The 
attendance is good. The class meets at 2.15

is doing good work. We hope other fratern-

Doubtless the title of this collection of 
thoughts upon things as they are, and were, and 
will he, needs some explanation, and therefore 
for the edification of the peruser it behooves 
that a few words be set up in print; having 
thusly construed our major premise we pro- 
ceed to the redueto nach absurdum of the con- 
cession — an apology as 'twere. This column 
absolutely has no reason for its existence ; it has 
simply been inserted incidentally, so to speak, 
in the midst of the others in order that the 
out of the way ideas might find fructiferous soil 
in which to fructuate. As to its aristocracy it 
might simply and with pride state that it is 
a cousin by marriage to "The Free Lance," 
on the maternal side a distant half -aunt to ' ' The 
Phillistine," and through its grand-imele a 

nephew of the mother-in-law of the composer 
of "The Anvil Chorus," and being of a harm- 
less and peaceful disposition there need but lit- 
tle else be said, thus proving beyond a shadow 
of a doubt that, as Laennec well said, "A stitch 
in time is worth 2 in the bush." 

A dicrotic wave of approval has arisen 
ad sidra over the outcome of the much looked 
forward to Academic Day. Certainly it is the 
day of days around the University when there 
is cause for rejoicing. Of a priore importance 
is the holiday for by virtue of which the cadets 
are enabled to get to Baltimore when the 
Gayety has the. best matinee, the lawyers are 
able to keep an evening engagement that other- 
wise would go begging, the pharmacists are 
given the opportunity to go over to Sharp & 
Dohme 's and flirt with the pill girls at work, the 
dentists are thereby permitted to walk up and 
down Lexington street to their hearts' content 
and the physicians and surgeons are enabled 
to have time enough to review a part, at least, 
of their back work. Blackstone is often quoted 
as saying, "the better the day the better the 
deed." (Item — The omission of the Depart- 
ment of Nurses was not intentional, for on 
the other hand the writer of this column has 
them constantly in mind, but the reason for the 
omission can be readily summed up in one 
quotation, to wit: "Man's work is from sun to 
sun, but Woman's work is never done," and 
secondly that although the King proclaim peace 
and a holiday in all the land the handlers of the 
thermometer and hypo, and ice-cap must even 
yet remain on the job and keep the "t. i. d. 's." 
and the "q. necessary's" and the "c. c. 's." 
from going to the bow-wows. Selah! 

Thus spake Shakespeare in the days of old, 
"but the saddest of these is the human mind 
deranged." Can it be that recently he has in 
spirit our venerable univ. ? This inquisition 
had been prompted by the seeing of siipposedly 
rational beings that haunt our above-mentioned 
venerable univ., and in the haunting thereof 
have been seen attired in the most atrocious of 
hats (a seim-helmet shape Avith a . double 
streamer of gaudy green) and at times are seen 



carrying mysterious bundles and on whom a 
shave would undoubtedly prove of cosmetic 
benefit. Of their conduct a trace of the milk of 
human kindness forbids any comment. But 
why should we comment on the actions and 
apparel of our fellow man? When we see one 
'midst us that persistently Avears a mackinaw, 
or an Elbert Hubbard necktie, or a slouch hat, 
or blunt pointed shoes, or green shirts, or 
princenez specks, or walks up Charles street 
at mid-day sans chapeau, do we not glance his 
way and sigh and envy him, saying within our 
innermiost soul that he is an artist, or a musi- 
cian, or a poet, or per chance, a genius? The 
psychologists even go so far as to claim that 
Buddah was a paranoiac, and Bay View is full 
of people with individual peculiarities. 

It has been figured out by those whose minds 
run to figures (kind not specified) that one- 
third of our natural lives is spent in sleep. Also 
from a therapeutic standpoint it has been 
figured out by those whose minds run to figures 
(ditto) that the efficiency of sleep is increased 
about 31444957ths by comfort. Now, the facts 
stare us in the face that in order to sleep right- 
ly we must be comfortable, and that further- 
more as many of us are given to napping dur- 
ing the course of a lecture, it folloAvs that some 
word as to the comfort of the nappers might 
be of service in siich a dept. as this lays (or lies, 
as the case may be) out as its presenting symp- 
tom. Have you, gentle reader, ever.sat for one 
solid hour, or two, or even three, in the knee- 
chest position on those abominable seats in 
the amphitheatre? Have you ever tied your 
corpus at mentis into a Gordian knot or as- 
sumed the contvire of a pretzel in the seats at 
the Maryland General Hospital from 12 till 2? 
How the proposition of comfort affects our 
subconscious minds when we have worked hard 
all day and come back to the little flat and don 
the smoking jacket and devour a home-cooked 
supper and drape ourselves o'er the Morris 
chair and light up the pipe and ease the weary 
feet into the roomy knitted slippers and take 
Helen's hand that idly wanders 'round our 
neck and with a gentle squeeze ask, "What is 
it?" And when she tells us that the new hat 
costs only 40 bucks, do we rave and tear up 

the evening paper with the Mexican situation 
to smithereens and lunge a savage kick at the 
cat which has domestically rubbed its purring 
back against the outstretched limbs ? No ! 
Again, no ! The chances are ten to six and five- 
eighths that we will take out the ever-r,eady 
purse and count out 50 beans and give 'em to 
Helen and murmur: "Is-ki-bib-bell. " And 
the moral of this fable from those of Aesop (be- . 
cause I was with Mr. A. E. Sop when he wrote 
it and he 'splained it to me just as he intend- 
ed it to be understood) is that it was not the 
eat, nor the hat, nor the fern, nor the fire, but 
it was, the Irish say, "les environs" or the 
element of comfort, or the combo in toto. 
Diagramatically speaking, you can't enjoy a 
lecture, no matter how lectureafied the lecturer 
be, when your intervertebral discs are sub- 
jected to 41144 mm. Hg., to the sq. cc, or when 
your vertebral column is assuming the con- 
figuration of a pretzel ! 

November 24th, and at last the cold, sharp 
air is smarting the face, forcing out a ruddy 
glow. The law students are glad. Not be- 
cause they are particularly fond of winter ; not 
because the path, which Thomas Carlysle speaks 
of when he says, "From the lowest depth there 
is a path to the loftiest height," is 'more regu- 
lar, more easily ascendable, to those who hope 
to reach the top of this road, and become illus- 
trious in the profession of law, during this sea- 
son of the year. 

The law students are glad for this reason, 
They need no longer suffer the decrepitating 
sensations experienced while attending the law 
lectures held in the Anatomical Room of the 
Medical Building. On the level, the janitor 
seems to be afraid he might fall out of a win- 
dow should he by chance open one. It is sur- 
prising that those who are versed in the fatal 
consequences of the lack of ventilation would 
allow such conditions to exist. Possibly a visit 
to the lecture halls in the Law Building would 
be an inspiration. 

Looking over a prominent law magazine the 
other day, I was verj^ much impressed with 
an advertisement of the one of the leading law 
book publishing houses in this country, ap- 
pearing on the front page. It read like this: 



Tiffany on Real Property. 

The American Classic on Real Property. 
Herbert T. Tiffany, of the Baltimore Bar. 
"Which ad. suggests the following remarks: 

It seems to me that the Baltimore Bar re- 
ceives its due proportion of prominence by the 
brilliant work of its members and could there- 
fore very well spare to the University the name 
of our illustrious professor. Why not link the 
law school with this American classic by sub- 
stituting Professor of Law in the University 
of Maryland, for, of the Baltimore Bar? In 
the writer's humble opinion it would not only 
be more pleasing to the eye, but would also, in 
a great measure, lend prestige to the school. 
Of course, it is incumbent upon all of us to 
extoU the virtues of the University and I believe 
by following out the above suggestion would 
be one of the capital waj's of so doing. While 
on my vacation down in the Old North State it 
was with considerable pride that I could tell 
the lawyers and students there, with whom I 
came in contact, of the excellent course we 
have in the law of real property. I suppose 
the reason why I derived a peculiar pleasure 
in conversing with them on this particular 
course was because of the bare mention of Mr. 
Tiffany's name as professor, seemed to be all the 
support needed for the enthusiastic assertions 
I would make concerning it. 

Not that the lawyers and students elsewhere 
are so fortunate as we, in that of knowing Mr. 
Tiffany personally, but they know that he is 
one of America's leading authorities on the 
law of real i^roperty ; they know that he is 
the author of the aforesaid classic. But they 
do not know that this venerable institution 
which, bj' the way, has a whooping big reputa- 
tion throughout the South, has this dis- 
tinguished authority as professor on the sub- 

It seems some of the law men's "pecuniary 
nerves ' ' are very sensitive. We are sure a dose 
of "Old Maryland" will prove a good anetic.

daughter of the late Dr. Richard Coates, a 
Quaker of prominence, whose family founded 
the city of Coatesville, Pa., many years ago. 
She was married to Dr. Martin 17 years ago, 
the wedding being a notable social event. She 
was a charming hostess of marked beauty, and 
was one of Baltimore's most popular society 
women, taking great interest in the social life 
of the city, of which she was a leader. Mrs. 
Martin was one of the vice-presidents of the

The Certification of Pharmacists. 

■ Dear Doctor : — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly 
investigate New York pharmacies and certify to the 
worth of those that meet reasonable modern require- 
ments in stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifi- 
cation. The character of work we have been doing 
for more than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly 
and firmly established us in your esteem and favor- 
ably testifies as to our abilities and methods. 

Linden and North Aves. 

This unique establishment is fully equipped for pre- 
scriptions and stocked with a large assortment of sick 
room supplies, invalid's appliances and household drugs 
and chemicals ; surgical instruments and physician's 
supplies are more fully stocked at Charles, and Frank- 
lin Streets. 

We are working with you, doctor, not against }'ou.

Professor of Physiology and Clinical Medicine, 

University of Maryland. 


By John C. Hemmeter, M.D. 

About eight years ago the author published 
an article in the "Medical Library and His- 
torical Journal" on the subject of "German- 
American Influence in the Development of Med- 
icine and Surgery" (see this Journal, Volume 
4, September, 19U6, No. 3), and in 1909, by re- 
quest of the National German-American Al- 
liance (Deutsch-Amerikanisher National-Bund) 
he published an exhaustive article in a work 
called ' ' The Book of the Germans in America ' ' 
(page 323 J. The title of the article was "Ger- 
man Teachers and American Professors," 154 
biographies, which had special reference to 
German influence on the development of Amer- 
ican medicine and surgery. This book was pub- 
lished by "Walthers," Third and Girard ave- 
nues, Philadelphia. 

As the future history of our country is 
founded on the past and present, it is of im- 
portance that the true merits of the various 
races which compose our great nation be again 
and again emphasized. One statement of a 
great discovery or contribution to science is 
rarely sufficient. It frequently occurs that 
there are many claimants to the same discovery, 
that is, they often think they have made a dis- 

covery when the new thing to which they -lay 
claim has already been the property of science 
many years betore the date of their claims. 
Personally i have had this experience with the 
discovery of the new method of duodenal in- 
tubation, which 1 published first in 1897 in the 
"Johns Hopkins Hospital Medical Bulletin" 
and demonstrated at a meeting of the Johns 
Hopkins Hospital Medical Society when my 
iriend, Simon Flexner, was in the chair. This 
discovery was later claimed by i'ranz Kuhn, of 
L'assel, still later by Einhorn, of New York, 
both of whom simply modified the method and 
used a tube which was already in vogue in my 
clinic, though I had not published my own 
modifications of the first method. The same 
can be said of the method for enabling clinicians 
to make use of the Roentgen rays, or X-rays, 
for photographing difiierent portions of the gas 
tro-intestiual tract. This has been claimed by 
others and had to be re-claimed again and 
again, and even at the present day there are 
clinicians in this country who attribute this dis- 
covery to Holzknecht, or Haudeck, of Vienna. 

So it is not a tautology to bring to mind once 
more the historic merits which the Germanic 
races deserve in the intellectual, social and in- 
dustrial upbuilding of the United States. As 
I have, in those papers mentioned, dwelt mainly 
upon medicine and surgery, I shall in the suc- 
ceeding remarks bring to memory the acts and 
accomplishments of the Germans in a political, 
artistic, industrial and religious aspect: 

No other nationality has stamped itself so 
indelibly upon the population map of the United 
States as has the German. There is not a State 
in which the German-American does not stand 
well at the top of the so-called foreign popula- 
tion, and in 29 States this nationality leads all 

Stolid and phlegmatic are the two adjeeives 
most frequently used in connection with the 
German. None but the ignorant or unthinking 
would use them. 


Do you call that race stolid that braved the 
terrors of the Atlantic and made history on this 
continent years before the Pilgrim Fathers 
thought oi coming over? 

Do you call that race stolid that furnished 
the iirst uartyr in the struggle of the American 
people for liberty? 

Do you call that race phlegmatic that issued 
the first written protest against slavery, right 
here away back in 1688 ? 

Do you call that race stolid that printed the 
first Jbibie on this continent? 

Do you call that race stolid that produced 
the hero that first faced trial and suffered im- 
prisonment in order that the freedom of the 
press might be established in America? 

Is that race phlegmatic that furnished five 
of the chief oificers of the Revolutionary army, 
that furnished 180,000 fighters to the Federal 
army and the Civil War, of whom 5,000 were 
officers, among them 9 major generals and 33 
brigadier generals, when the conflict ended? 

Is that race stolid that has always hrough- 
out American history fought as well as pleaded 
for liberty, that furnished ail of the 700 men 
that, under Herkimer, fought the battle of Oris- 
kany, the bloodiest conflict of the war for In- 
dependence ; that fought from the siege of Bos- 
ton to Yorktown; that sent the first regiment 
to Washington when President Lincoln called 
for volunteers; that took the bridge at Antie- 
tam, held Cemetery Ridge at Gettysburg, 
stormed Fort Fisher and marched with Sher- 
man to the sea? 

Many of our most celebrated living Ameri- 
cans are of German birth, and it is greatly to 
the race's credit that eminence in scholarship 
and music stands first among them. I can name 
at least fifty German ijrofessors in our univei'- 
sities, whose names are world famous; I can 
name more than thirty distinguished German 
musicians in the country. In commerce, art, 
religion, law, literature, polities, mechanics, 
Germans stand in the front rank in surprising 

Leaders in Industry and Commerce. 

Through their skill, their genius, their sta- 
bility and enterprise, the Germans have always 
been leaders in industry and commerce, and 
now that I think about it, I do not recall find- 

ing German names in any of our epidemics of 
big swindling enterprises. German industries 
are built to stand. 

To the Germans in America we owe the first 
paper mill and the first type foundry ; the Ger- 
mans established the first chemical factories 
and the greatest in the world are still run by 
Germans here. They established the first 
leather and gun factories, the first powder mills 
and the first iron and glass works. 

In business the Germans also have the Spreck- 
els and Havemeyer families in sugar ; Frederick 
Weyerhaeuser, credited with being wealthier 
than John D. Rockefeller, because of his vast 
timber holdings ; the Roeblings, father and son, 
who first spanned Niagara's gorge and linked 
New York and Brooklyn with marvelous 
bridges, and founded cable wire spimieries in 
a i\ew Jersey town that now bears the family 
name ; George C. Boldt, of the Waldorf-Astoria 
and other famous hotels, who sets the standard; 
F. Augustus Heinze, whose name is stamped 
deeiD in mining history ; Heinrich Wehrum, who 
founded the great Lackawanna Iron and Steel 
Works at Seneca and Buffalo, N. Y. 

Notable Patrons of Art and Music. 

It is a notable fact that the German never 
gets so absorbed in sordid business as to have 
his love of music, of art, of the finer things of 
life, submerged. There is evidence of this in 
every community, for the German business man 
is ahvays a patron of the artistic, and his 
patronage usually is proportionate to his in- 

Music, especially song, to the German is a 
sort of worship. Evexy German knows the 
songs of his country and sings them every time 
occasion arises. That fact has had a wonderful 
influence on the social life of this country. I 
believe that the German singing societies have 
done more than anything else to create and 
cultivate a love of vocal music in the nation. 
There are more than two hundred of these 
societies in Greater New York, 84 of which 
are in the Borough of Brooklyn. There are 
38 such singing societies in St. Louis, and more 
in Milwaukee.- 

The great orchestras, such as the Philhar- 
monic in New York, the Theodore Thomas in 
Chicago, and the Boston Symphony, are Ger- 


man in origin, in leadership, largely personnel, 
but cosmopolitan in siij^port. All of us like 
them. Theodore Thomas, Anton Seidl, Wil- 
liam Gerieke, the Damrosches, Emil Paur, Gus- 
tav Mahler, Frederick Stock, Carl Muck, Josef 
Stransky and a long list of other brilliant con- 
ductors have made Americans quite as familiar 
with German composers as are the people in 
the Fatherland. 

Famous Professors in Universities. 

I will mention only a few of the German 
professors in our universities, just enough to 
show the diversity of their specialties. There 
is Hugo Munsterberg, the noted professor of 
psychology in Harvard ; Kuno Fraucke, profes- 
sor of German literature and history of German 
culture and curator of the Germanic Museum 
in Harvard, the man that first suggested the 
exchange of professors between German and 
American universities, which has worked out 
successfully and is rapidly establishing a 
stronger relationshiiD between the two coun- 
tries; Paul S. Reinsch, professor of political 
science in the University of Wisconsin, who was 
the Roosevelt professor to the universities of 
Berlin and Leipzig, in 1911-12, and is an 
authority on international relation whose books 
are translated into many foreign languages ; 
Friedrich Hirth, of Columbia University, the 
highest authority on China and the Chinese; 
Julius Goebel, professor of Germanic languages 
in the University of Illinois and noted author; 
Paul Haupt, of Johns Hopkins University, pro- 
fessor of Semitic languages and the greatest 
authority on ancient civilization; John M. 
Sehaeberle, astronomer, of the University of 
Michigan and the Lick Observatory, who has 
discovered three comets. 

The development of art in this country owes 
much to the Germans, and at all times the 
names of German painters and sculptors have 
stood at the top of the catalogue. Among those 
that are world famous are Frederick Dielman, 
Gari Melchers, Carl L. Brandt, Karl Marr, 
whom we raised in Milwaukee and then sent 
abroad to become professor in the Academy of 
Fine Arts in Munich and win numerous decora- 
tions for his paintings ; Charles H. Niehaus, 
Albert Jaegers, William H. Funk and F. W. 

15,000,000 German-Americans. 

Six million Germans have emigrated to the 

United States, and at present 15,000,000 men, 
women and children, who are German either by 
birth or descent, are in this country. There 
are various estimates ranging from 13,000,000 
to 18,400,000, but my investigations lead me 
to believe that 15,000,000 in round figures is 
right. That is about one-sixth of our total 
poiDulation, and about 22 per cent, of the total 
white population. 

If all of our Germans could be gathered in 
one State its pojaulation would be more than 
equal to the combined population of Massachu- 
setts, Connecticut, Maryland, Georgia, Louis- 
iana, Minnesota, Kansas, Colorado and Utah. 
There are more Germans in New York city than 
in any city in the German Empire excepting 
Berlin; there are more Germans in Malwauket 
than in Bremen; more in Buffalo than in Hei 
delberg. There are 93,000 Germans in Ken 
tucky, over 56 per cent, of the foreign popula- 
tion; there are 21,000 in Arkansas, 39 per cent, 
of the foreign population, and in the District 
of Columbia there are 19,000, about 28 per cent 
of the foreign population. 

We are now getting approximately 40,000 
newcomers from Germany each year, and the 
occupations of that host are significant. Of 
those Germans that came in 1911, 7,390 were 
farm laborers and 1,356 avowed farmers ; 1,728 
were merchants; 1,108 were carpenters and 
.joiners ; 1,911 were clerks and accountants ; 794 
were bakers; 689 were tailors; 353 were teach- 
ers ; 109 were sculptors and artists ; 206 were 
musicians ; 72 were architects ; 103 were elec- 
tricians and 295 were professional engineers. 

The number of farmers and farm laborers 
in that list is especially significant. Agricul- 
ture is the backbone of American economy, and 
the Germans in America have always been the 
strongest vertebrae in that backbone. The 
comparatively limited and meagre soil of their 
homeland had taught the Germans to be frugal 
farmers, and especially not to abuse the soil. 
All parts of our country can testify to their 
industry. No other farms are so carefully cul- 
tivated, so Avell kept up or so generally pro- 
ductive as those of the Germans, and no others 
are so homelike. They are the best home- 
builders. Prosperity follows the Teuton. 
Wherever he settles a superior quality of citi- 
zenship is sure to develop. 


German Vote Turns the Scale. 

Naturally such a hardy, numerous and in- 
telligent people has had a marked influence 
on American politics and has produced many 
citizens who have distinguished themselves in 
this time. I have often heard it maintained 
that the German vote cannot be controlled. It 
doesn't have to be. The German is a good voter 
and can be depended on to exercise the fran- 
chise intelligently. There is evidence that in 
every important election for the past 50 years 
the German vote has turned the scale. 

Germans in politics date back to the be- 
ginning of affairs in the United States. The 
first speaker of the House of Rei^resentatives 
was a German. He was August Muhlenberg, 
son of one of the greatest of Revolutionary 
heroes and grandson of Henry M. Muhlenberg, 
founder of the Lutheran Church in America, 
which now has over 2,000,000 members. 

Ahead of the Pilgrims. 

Facts very recently brought to light show- 
ing the important part the Germans pla.yed in 
the early history of this couutrj^ will be a sur- 
prise for most readers and should make the 
heart of every living German-American swell 
with pride. I have said that they made his- 
tory on this continent years before the Pilgrim 
Fathers thought of coming over. I might truth- 
fully have said nearly a century before, for 
away back in 1.538, a German printer named 
Cromberger got as near to us as Mexico and in 
that year set up a i)rinting office in the City of 

While Hudson was the discoverer of the river 
bearing his name, a German, Hendrick Chris- 
tiansen, followed closely after him and was the 
real explorer of the river and surrounding 
country. He made eleven expeditions to this 
region and was the founder of New Amsterdam. 

And here comes a shock for the Dutch 
Doubtless all who read this had been taught, 
for it is so written in all our histories, that it 
was a Hollander who made that famous ■ pur- 
chase of Manhattan Island from the Indians for 
•1)24. The truth is that a German made that 
bai'gain. He was Peter Minnewit (Minuit is 
tlie usual spelling), a native of Wesel. lie 
was director-general of New Netherlands and 

in 1621, closed that transaction with the Man- 
hattan (Manhattee) Indians, purchasing the 
island for the Dutch. It was he who erected 
the fortification in the present Wall Street 
region and put the colony on a successful foot- 

Another German, Jacob Leisler, from Frank- 
fort, was the first to arouse in the colonists 
that feeling of community interest which 
eventually led to the overthrow of British rule 
and the formation of the United States. After 
the annexation of New Netherlands by the Eng- 
lish, and during the foment in the colonies 
caused by the crowning of William III, the 
people of New York elected Leisler as their 
temporary governor. To combat the attacks 
of the French he called together the first Gon.- 
gress of American colonies. He was tried on 
the charge of being a demagogue and was 
hanged in 1691. Leisler was that first martyr 
in the struggle of the American people for 
liberty referred to above. 

It was only a few years later that Peter 
Zender, a young German printer, started a 
weekly paper in New York and made himself 
so unpopular with the officials by constantly 
criticising their actions that they first publicly 
burned copies of his paper ; then when he kept 
on criticising he was imprisoned and was that 
first man to suffer in the cause of a free press 
in America. 

The First Real Colony. 

The first Germans to come for the exj^ress 
purpose of establishing a colony Avere the twelve 
families who, driven from Germany by religious 
persecution, arrived in Philadelphia in 1682. 
Their settlement was then, and still is, called 
Germantown, the city's best-known suburb. 
Much American history, and of the very best 
kind, was made by these Germantown Germans. 
They printed the first Bible on this continent ; 
they biiilt the first paper mill ; they molded the 
first type ; there was printed our first religious 
periodical ; and it was there that the fight 
against slaverj^ was begun. 

"First in war and first in peace" can truly 
be said of the Germans in America. Captain 
Dondel 's men were the first to arrive at the 
siege of Boston. A German newspaper, the 
Philadelphia "Staatsbote," was the first to 


herald the birth of the American republic after 
the signing of the Declaration of Independence. 

The outcome of our war for independence 
might have been disastrously different if it had 
not been for that noble Prussian officer, Baron 
von Steuben, who arrived Avhen Washington's 
few thousand discouraged men were suffering 
in the desolate winter quarters at Valley Forge. 
"Without pay, this former adjutant of Frederick 
the Great took hold of the undisciplined colo- 
nial soldiers and transformed them into eiScient 
fighters. A recent history proclaims him as 
the true originator of the American army. 

This same historian also declares that it 
seems very doubtful that in the Civil War the 
preservation of the Union might have been ac- 
complished without the patriotic support of the 
German element. He points out that large 
numbers of the German soldiers, espiecially 
the ofScers, had received practical training in 
the war academies and in the armies of the 
German Empire and that the presence of so 
many efficient officers and men was of the 
greatest importance to the North, as at the out- 
break of the war the Confederates had far the 
greater number of officers trained at West 

To tell the complete story of the services cf 
General Peter Muhlenberg would almost be to 
write the hisory of the Revolutionary War. 
"Peter the Devil" they called this Lutheran 
minister, who was easily one of the greatest 
heroes as well as the most picturesque figure 
among the generals in the war. Heroes all 
were Carl Sehurz, Franz Sigel and Peter Os- 
terhaus, in the Civil War ; and the supreme hero 
among the officers in the Spanish- American war 
was Admiral Schley, who also was of German 

Carl Sehurz and the Forty-eighters. 

It is doubtful that any other man of any 
race every stamped his personality upon this 
country more deeply than the late Carl Sehurz, 
and in so many ways — as soldier, scholar, politi- 
cal reformer, statesman and publicist. He was 
of the second great period of German immi- 
gration. The first period was from 1682 to 
1775, when the immigration was induced by 
religious motives. The second was in the 40 's 
of the nineteenth century, prompted by politi- 

cal considerations, the period that brought to 
us the famous Forty-eighters, about twenty 
thousand of the very best Germans of that gen- 
eration. They were the patriots of that Ger- 
man revolution of 1848 that failed. What this 
country owes to the zeal, the statesmanship, 
the battling qualities of those young patriots 
who had been fighting for a free and united 
Germany is inestimable. Fighters, writers, ora- 
tors, they naturally became leaders. Carl 
Sehurz was one of them. A Carl Sehurz pro- 
fessorship endowed with $30,000, was recently 
established by the University of Wisconsin, 
and the chair is filled by a professor selected 
from a univei-sity in the Fatherland. The third 
great period of German immigration, beginning 
with 1880, had a purely economic character. 

The immigration reached its highest volume 
in 1882, when 250,630 came from the Father- 
land. From that year it gradually fell until 
1898, after which date it slowly rose. From 
25,000 to 46,000 per year halve been coming to 
us during the last decade. 

So marked has been the influence of the Ger- 
mans in the United States upon our industry, 
our customs, our daily life and so widely are 
they distributed that the traveler from the 
Fatherland has no need to look upon this as a 
foreign country. Despite the fact that no other 
race is so readily assimilated or fits better into 
our institutions, we have to a large extent be- 
come Germanized. 

Evidences of German Influence. 

Consider the German names you constantly 
encounter while reading by the Welsbach light, 
itself a German invention. More than likely 
your American-made piano bears a German 
name, and more often than any other you hear 
the compositions of Germans — Bach, Beethoven, 
Liszt, Strauss and the rest — played on it. At 
the opera you listen oftenest to German mas- 
terpieces, and to Wagner most of all. 

Nearly every American city of any considera- 
ble size, and many of population under 5,000, 
have German newspapers and periodicals 
(there are 600 of them, of which Wisconsin has 
79), yet practically every one of them is sim- 
ply an American publication printed in the Ger- 
man language, showing that the Germans have 
been as much Americanized as the country has 
been Germanized. 


Next in number to the German singing socie- 
ties are the benevolent associations of this pecu- 
liarly humanitarian race. But such work is 
to me expected of the people of the nation that 
first brought to perfection the old age pension 
system and the employer's liability and work- 
man's compensation. 

The most comprehensive of all German socie- 
ties in the United States is the National Ger- 
man-American Alliance, founded 11 years ago 
with the purpose of promoting all that is good 
in German character and culture and particu- 
larly that which might add to the Avelfare of 
the United States, the adopted home of so many 
millions of the race. The president of the al- 
liance, which now has about two and a half 
million members, is Charles J. Hexamer, of 
Philadelphia, who should really have been in- 
cluded in my list of prominent German-Ameri- 
cans in the field of industry. By profession a 
civil engineer, he has been awarded medals for 
inventions, is the author of numerous technical 
books, and has been decorated by the Emperor 
of Germany for services in diffusing German 
culture in America.

Scient. D., LL. D. 

1865, in Bremen, Germany, visited the Gym- 
nasium in his birth-town, which he absolved 
1884. Studied in Jena, Tubingen, Berlin, Bonn, 
passed the state examination 1889, and received 
the Doctor degree in the same year. 

After that he visited several foreign towns 
for information in medical sciences, Baltimore 
and Washington too. In 1890 he became assist- 
ant physician to Prof. Fr. Muller (now in 
Munich, at that time in Breslau), on wliose 
recommendation, he, in 1892, turned to Berlin 

as assistant to the late Prof. G. Gerhardt, the 
most famous German clinician. 

In 1894 he came back to Bonn as private 
docent for internal medicine, and stayed there 
till 1902, when he was elected chief physician 
of the Friedrichstadter Krankenhaus in Dres- 

In 1907 the Prussian Government engaged 
him as Professor of internal medicine and di- 
rector of the university-hospital in Halle, the 
old famous medical school. 

His scientific reputation was founded by his 
investigations in human excrements, which 
opened a new method of studying the functions 
of the digestive tube. With that. Prof. Ad. 
Schmidt first analyzed the different dyspeptic 
troubles of intestinal origin. The result of his 
various and important clinical studies in his 
"Klinik der Darmkrankheiten," a standard 
work, the first part of which was published 
last year, whilst the second part is just coming 

Besides that, Prof. Schmidt has been much 
occupied with gastric and pancreatic diseases 
and has enriched the treatment of them with 
several new and useful methods. 

But also in diseases of the lungs and the 
nervous system he has found some new facts 
and conti'ibuted to the therapeutics. For in- 
stance, he was one of the first authors to 
elaborate t he treatment of pulmonary dis- 
eases with the introduction of air into the 
])leura, the so-called artificial pneumothorax. 
Furthermore, he gave the impulse for treating 
the rheumatism of the muscles with injections 
of physiological salt solution, which sometimes 
is of a striking effect. 

Prof. Schmidt is editor of a manual of diag- 
nostic and of the "Zentralblatt fur innere

JANUARY 1, 1914. 


A striking portrait of Doctor Samuel C. 
Chew, of Roland Park, Baltimore, has just been 
completed by Miss Marie de Ford Keller, the 
Baltimore artist. The portrait was publicly 
exhibited in the galleries of the Peabody In- 
stitute. It is an excellent likeness and depicts 
Doctor Chew seated in a big chair, wearing his 
purple hooded gown. Since retiring in June, 
1909, Doctor Chew has served as Emeritus Pro- 
fessor of Medicine in the University of Mary- 
land, from which institution he was graduated 

with the class of 1858, thus having served his 
Alma Mater in one capacity or another for 
fifty-five years. His announcement of resigna- 
tion from active tutorial service in June, 1909, 
was received by those interested in the institu- 
tion with genuine regret, as by his earnestness 
of purpose and lovable traits he had endeared 
himself in the hearts of those with whom his 
duties had brought him in contact. He was 
elected Professor of Materia Medica and Thera- 
peutics in 1864, and upon the death of Professor 
Richard McSherry in 1885, was transferred to 


the chair of Principles and Practice of Medi- 
cine, later changed at Doctor Chew's request 
to Professor of Medicine. He is one of the few 
of the old school doctors left. "His varied ac- 
complishments as a teacher, his urbanity, dig- 
nity and pure character, his splendid influence 
over the student body and over the alumni, 
and his exalted position in the community as a 
gentleman of the highest cultural refinement, 
are distinctions which it is permitted few men 
to reach in any calling of life." We are glad to 
announce to Doctor Chew's many friends and 
admirers that he is still enjoying excellent 
health, and in behalf of the readers of "Old 
Maryland" we wish our esteemed teacher the 
compliments of the season and many, manj' 
years more of health and happiness. 



Don't be backward in sending in your sub- 
scription. Above all, don't feel slighted if you 
are not personally solicited, as those in charge 
of the fund believe the work of Doctor Cordell 
in behalf of the University of Maryland suffi- 
ciently meritorious to render a man to man 
appeal unnecesssary. Surely enough interest 
should be taken in this movement to forever 
perpetuate the memory of a man who devoted 
a large part of his time to the upbuilding of the 
University. The committee thanks those who 
have already subscribed, and earnestly solicits 
further contributions so as to make the memor- 
ial worthy of the man to whose memory it is to 
be erected.

terially enhance the prestige of the University 
of Maryland- 


Our University is pretty well rounded out, 
having depai'tments of medicine, law, dentistry, 
pharmacy and arts and sciences. A pertinent 
question occurs, however, why not a commer- 
cial department? It occurs to us that the Bal- 
imore Business College or some other similar 
institution could supply this need. The pro- 
gressive Western colleges have commercial 
courses leading to the degree of B. A. St. 
John's and the professional schools of the Uni- 
versity are able to supply any extra lecturers 
needed. This would be an advancement in the 
interest of education as well as a distinct ad- 
vantage to the business interests of our com- 

The idea suggested by one of our editors in 
the December issue of "Old Maryland," that 
those connected with the teaching forces of the 
University, when writing books, should sub- 
scribe themselves as such, is a suggestion worth 
while bearing in mind. The bare suggestion 
certainly justified the existence of "Old Mary- 
laud." It was a constructive criticism which 
will repay the entire expense of that issue, if it 
accomplishes the purpose which called it forth.

Upon resolution duly seconded and unani- 
mously passed, it was resolved that whereas it 
is understood that Mr. Charles H. Grasty, pro- 
prietor of the Baltimore Sun, is willing to de- 
liver a course of lectures on current topics to 
the students of the University, it is the senti- 
ment of the Executive Committee of his Asso- 
ciation (G. A. A.) that such a course should be 
arranged, and the Provost is respectfully re- 
quested to arrange it if possible. The Secre- 
tary was instructed to send a copy of this reso- 
lution to Dr. Fell. 



We have heard some remark that the reason 
they don't work in the U. H. Dispensary, is

Some of the alumni and undergraduates 
ought to investigate thoroughly, and take up 
as an interesting research branch, Dr. McEl-

The Bar Association of Baltimore City held 
its annual meeting at the Hotel Rennert, on 
Tuesday, December 2, 1913, at which the fol- 
lowing officers were elected: Charles Morris 
Howard, class of 1888, President; Eugene 
O 'Dunne, class of 1900, and Joseph C. France, 
class of 1883, Vice-Presidents; A. deRussy Sap-

class of 1896, Treasurer; and Morris A. Soper, 
class of 1895, and William L. Rawls, were 
elected members of the Executive Committee. 

The annual banquet which immediately fol- 
lowed the meeting was presided over by the 
newly elected President, Mr. Charles Morris 
Howard, who also acted as toastmaster in .his 
usual admirable and witty manner. 

Hon. Ilenrj' D. Harlan, class of 1881, who is 
about to retire as Chief Judge of the Supreme 
Bench of Baltimore City after twenty-five years 

of faithful service, was the especial guest of 
honor, and was received with tumultuous ap- 
plause when he arose to respond. 

Fully ninety per cent, of the Bar, who were 
iu attendance, liave sat at the feet of Judge 
Harlan imbibing legal wisdom like the Israel- 
ites of old at the feet of Gamaliel. 

Mr. Morris A. Soper, who is to succeed Judge 
Harlan as Chief Judge on January 1, 1914, was 
also an honored guest, and was received with 
great applause. 

Other addresses were made by Hon. Frank- 
lin D. Roosevelt, Assistant Secretary of the 
Navy, Hon. John W. Davis, Solicitor General 
of the United States, aud Hon. James Hamilton 
Lewis, the picturesque Senator from Illinois. 

Altogether the affair was the most successful 
and enjoyable one ever held by the Bar Associ- 
ation, and was attended by 260 members.

The third year class is certainly extremely 
slow when it comes to handing out money ; but 
then Christmas is so very close at hand and one 
must wait to see if such condition is really a 
chronic one. 

On Tuesday, December 2nd, the first dance 
of a series of this winter was held by the Junior 
Class at Keating 's Hall, and believe us, chil- 
dren, we had some time ! 

Every one (almost), was there wearing his 
Sunday suit and his holiday smile. Talk about 
your swell chicken — umm — class all the way 

The committee consisted of Messrs. Porter, 
Jenkins, Jones, Fritz and Moses, which should 
be congratulated on the success of the dance 
after the difficulties ($). 

Fellows, if you ever get married and want to 
have good music in attendance, hire the only

headache as the result of thinking of the 
question: "Who was the iirst dog who suffered 
from rabies?"

bring home the bacon. 

Who said something about the Junior class

What we would like to know: 

1. Why Stein does not comb his hair? 

2. Why Long has a nude head? 

3. Why Chandler wished to be ill? 

4. Where Roberts gets his demi-shaves? 

5. Who told Bishop to escort Roberts to the 
football game while in kitchen attire ? 

6. Who donated ten cents toward shaving 
the hog bristles from Dr. Fulk 's handsome face ? 

7. Who boards E. K. M. and his 30-foot 
stomach ? 

8. Who found a tuft of hair lost in the 
vicinity of the U. of M. ? Finder please return 
to Dr. Whittle. 

9. When is the scheduled bout between Dr. 
E. C. and our classmate, Thos. E. B., to be 
pulled off? 

10. Why does our friend C. S. persist in ap- 
pearing in the lecture hall on Wednesday be- 
tween 5 and 6 o'clock after roll call? 

Good and welfare: 

1. Better ventilation for our Chemical Hall. 

2. One thousand twenty-five-cent contribu- 
tions for our growing library. 

3. Less scraping of feet during lectures. 

4. More enthusiasm at our class meetings. 

5. Abolition of hand clapping. 

6. University Spirit (as shown Academic 

7. Less high school yelling before lecture. 

8. Prompt dismissal by Prof. P. 

9. Subscriptions for "Old Maryland." 

10. An awakening of the drones who content 
themselves with study only. 

We wish to thank Dr. John C. Hemmeter for 
his never ceasing interest in our behalf. Anj^ 
doctor who will lecture to his class while he is 
visibly ill deserves the honor and respect of 
his students. Again we compliment him on his 
constant activities in our behalf. 

Law — Senior. 

The editorial policy of "Old Maryland," is 
to recognize each class of the Law, Department 
as consisting of two divisions, day and night; 
the two divisions of each class constituting the 
senior, intermediate and junior classes. "Old 
Maryland" desires it to be distinctly under- 



stood that it is the representative of the entire 
student body; not of any clique, or association, 
its purpose is to give vent to student activities, 
wherever they can be found. 

Senior Law Banquet. 

On Tuesday evening, December 16th, the 
Senior Day Class of the Law Department, held 
its first banquet of the season in the Blue Room 
of the Hotel Belvedere. About fifty senior 
men were present, well representing the leading 
men of both day and night classes. The class 
was highly favored in having with it, as guests 
of honor, Chief Judge Henry D. Harlan, Judge 
James P. Gorter and Mr. Howard Bryant, Esq., 
of the Baltimore Bar. 

After a very excellent and well-served feast, 
the digestion of which was aided by har- 
monious music from the orchestra, Mr. E. F. 
Johnson, who acted as toastmaster, introduced 
the various speakers. In introducing Judge 
Harlan he paid the highest tribute to him as 
the Dean of the Law Department and said that 
although it was with the deepest regret the 
class saw him leave the bench they were grati- 
fied to learn that he was to remain with them 
as dean of the school. 

Judge Harlan gave the students some sound 
advice to follow if they were to be successful 
in their chosen profession. He reminded them 
of the value of tactfulness, of courtesy and con- 
sideration for others, giving apt illustrations 
showing where lack of these had marred the 
success and standing of men he knew. Judge 
Harlan also brought to the attention of the 
students the necessity for an abundance of good 
health which was a most valuable asset to the 
lawyer in active practice. He was sorry to 
notice that there were not more of the proper 
kind of athletics among the students of the 
Law Department. He cited incidents where 
lawyers had won cases they should not have 
won because of their sheer physical strength 
which enabled them to hold their own in diffi- 
cult or lengthy cases where the weaker man 

Judge Gorter gave to the students an in- 
teresting account of Judge Harlan's career, 
how he had come as a country boy from Har- 
ford County to Baltimore, had battled and 
gained the highest average ever attained at the 
University, how he had won professorship at 

the school where he is now dean and how he 
had attained the bench. Judge Gorter set up 
the career of Judge Harlan as an inspiring ex- 
ample for every student present to follow. 

Judge Gorter gave the class some of his ex- 
periences as a youthful lawyer and what he 
had learned by losing the first seven cases he 

Mr. Howard Bryant, Esq., called to the at- 
tention of the students the trials and pitfalls 
which beset the young lawyer and urged upon 
them the great value of careful and thorough 
■preparation. He cautioned them also against 
discouragements, which often preceded suc- 

Mr. J. 0. Knotts, of Caroline County, gave 
in a witty manner the attempts of a country 
plowboy to attain a legal education. 

Mr. Cochran, from the Eastern Shore, spoke 
upon the prestige of the lawyer, ancient and 
modern, showing how the lawyer of the present 
day often does not receive the honor and re- 
sioeet that is due him. 

Mr. Tschudy addressed his fellow classmen 
on the elements of true greatness, citing exam- 
ples of famous men who had fallen short of 
the ideal through disregard of humaintarian 
principles and personal integrity. 

Mr. Harris called forth roars of hearty 
laughter from those present by reciting some 
capital verses of his own con^position, taking 
off in an excellent manner the peculiarities of 
a number of members of the senior class. 

Mr. Connelly spoke of the appreciation of 
the bench for a simplicity and directness of 
manner of attorneys in pleading eases before 
them and of their dislike of oratorical fire- 

Mr. Levin spoke of what a valuable asset a 
legal education was in these days of strong 
competition and specializing. 

The banquet broke up at a late hour, every- 
one having heartily enjoyed himself and look- 
ing forward to a similar occasion of good fel- 
lowship in the spring. 

The Senior Day Class of the U. of M. Law 
Department (1914) has elected the following 
officers: President, E. F. Johnson; Vice-Presi- 
dent, R. K. Adams; Secretary, J. P. Schmidt; 
Treasurer, G. A. Eppley; Sergeant-at-Arms, C. 
0. Spamer; Executive Committee, Arthur B. 



Coimelly, E. F. Johnson, J. W. McDonnell, S. 
L. Cochrane, J. 0. Knotts, E. Levin; Editors 
"Terra Mariae," Arthur B. Connelly, S. L. 
Cochrane, R. D. Broadrup. 

The Senior Night Class of the Law Department 
has elected the following officers: President, 
R. K. Denworth; Vice-President, J. B. Berger; 
Secretary, Benj. Powell; Treasurer, 0. White; 
Sergeant-at-Arms, C. Gosnell; Executive Com- 
mittee, H. Robinson, L. Wagner, H. Hodes, H. 
Schulteis, A. M. Reid. Messrs. Noonan and 
Beale were elected editors to the "Terra 
Mariae," the College Year Book. Arthur M. 
Reid was appointed editor to "Old Maryland.'" 
Mr. Nelson Beale was appointed Honorary Poet, 
his work along that line having met with the 
approval of the class. 

Law — Intermediate.

did run smooth, only trouble is der pater don't

Chaney, Yost, Smyth and 'Neill, warning ! 
After this you'll be charged lodging if it hap- 
pens again. 

Regardless of what other feelings we may 
entertain towards the gentlemen who wished 
three hours of lectures on us for Monday, we are 
most grateful to them for forgetting that to 
one, and happily the last hour, they assigned 
Mr. Bryant,. The gentlemen who precede him 
are unquestionably very learned and entertain- 
ing lecturers, but their subjects do not partake 
of the entertaining qualities of their masters, 
and after a seance or nap in Anatomical Hall, 
in a knee chest, position (and most every other 
position), and another little nap during Title 
and Conveyancing, we are rewarded by Mr. 
Bryant, whose object is to get some law into 
our heads, and get us into condition to go 
home. Comes Mr. Bryant and "J. Rufus Pep" 
and a whole army of ginger joys, then it's all 
pyrotechnics and sizzle, a sort of garrison finish. 
So again, unwitting benefactors, we thank you. 

Gee ! Suppose Mr. Bryant forgets sometime, 
and hits that desk with the hand he has his 
glasses in ! Gee ! 

Haggerty and Cooley have gone to work! 
Take a chance Deakyne. 

Intermediate Law Banquet. 

The Intermediate Class of the University 
of Maryland Law School held a banquet De- 
cember 18th at Kernan's Hotel, after which 
they adjourned to the Maryland Theatre, where 
several boxes and rows of seats in the orchestra 
had been reserved for them. 

At the dinner G. Ridgeley Sappington and 
Howard Bryant were guests of honor and made 
speeches. Judge James P. Gorter and Albert 
C. Ritchie were to have attended, but found it 
impossible to come. Julius Zieget was toast- 
master and the student speakers were B. G. 
Gold, E. F. Miller and C. B. Smyth. The Dixie 
Serenaders rendered musical selections. 

The banquet committee was composed of J. 
L. Schanberger (chairman), S. R. Traub, R. E. 
Kanode, A. W. Bryan, A. B. Nickerson and 
M. K. Reckard. 

Those who attended the banquet were:

It was with regret that the dental men read 
the first issue of "Old Maryland," to find that 



the undergraduate dental department was not 
editorially represented. Since the first issue, 
arrangements have been made which will insure 
to the readers of "Old Maryland" those things 
of interest to the students as a class occurring 
in the department. 

The amalgamation of the University of Mary- 
land and Baltimore Medical College has greatly 
increased the number of our men, and has 
added much strength. The new condition has 
not given rise to any factional disturbance in 
the least, and the two groups are now as firmly 
and cordially attached as though no previous 
separation had ever existed. There was prac- 
tically no contest in elections, and what was 
seemed to be along lines of cleavage not relat 
ing to the two old schools. The presidents of 
the dental classes are: Senior Class, J. Ben 
Robinson, W. Va. ; Junior Class, J. J Purcell, 
N. Y. ; Freshman Class, A. G. Bryant, Mass. 

Aside from Hyde, Jenkins and Lacy, who 
have passed their State boards, the following 
seniors have recently taken State board exami- 
nations: In Virginia, Miss Carter, Messrs. 
Payne, Holmes, Radice, Guard, Summerfield; 
in New Jersey, Samuels. From the junior class, 
"Walker attempted the Virginia Board, and B. 
B. Smith the New Jersey. 

Dr. "W. H. Herbin, has been placed in charge 
of the extracting room, filling the place of Dr. 
"White, recently appointed to the Soldiers' 
Home, "Washington. Dr. Herbin is a member of 
the class of 1913, and although a North Caro- 
linian, will practice in Baltimore. 

The question was asked in the medical notes 
of last issue, ""Who said glee club?" To our 
certain knowledge, Dr. "W. A. Rea, of the den- 
tal faculty, was "the original glee club man," 
proposing the organization after hearing some

was successful in bringing together about a

This is the first year that hazing has not been 

one of the ojpening attractions at the Univer- 
sity of Maryland. "While the present senior 
class lamented the recognition of this time- 
honored and barbarous form of reception to 
the verdant freshman, and even passed resolu- 
tions denouncing the practice, it remained for 
the present junior class to knock the nefarious 
system into a cocked hat, and to the junior 
class should be given much credit for its elimi- 

A. H. Kendall, who spent his first year at the

The freshman class is attempting to organize 
a basket ball team from the great number of 
experienced players they have in that class. II 
successful, they will engage the freshman medi-

On the 30th of November, Rev. Mr. Murray, 
of the Fayette St. Methodist Church, chaper- 
oned a party of students to the Maryland State 
Penitentiary, where he preached to the inmates. 
Mr. Radice, of the senior class, happened to be 
Rev. Murray's hiking companion. "When pass- 
ing the "Washington Monument, Mr. Radice in- 
nocently inquired of the Rev. Murray, ""What 
is that tall structure?" leaving the impression 
that he is unacquainted with the sights of the 
city. After he had explained that it is a monu- 
ment erected to the memory of George "Wash- 
ington, father of his country, and first in war, 
first in peace, and first in the hearts of his 
fellow countrymen, the reverend gentleman 
stored the incident in his mind,' and in a sub- 
sequent speech made reference to the poor 
young man's restriction to books and hard 
work with no social recreation. Is there a 
jury in the land, knowing Radice as the dental 
men do, that would fail to vote unanimously to 
jjlace him behind the bars? He must have 
anticipations, since on leaving the services for 
the afternoon he joined the convicts in singing 
"God be with j^ou till we meet again,-" 

The Psi Omega and Xi Psi Phi fraternities 
each gave a smoker in honor of the freshmen at 
the opening of the present session. Practically 



the whole class attended, and were royally en- 
tertained by the two upper classes. The best 
possible feeling exists between the classes, and 
is probably due to this spirit of friendship on 
the part of the upper classmen. This was indi- 
cated r-ecently by a resolution being passed by 
the freshmen class thanking the other classes 
for the kindness and courtesy shown them. 

Sporting writers are debating the possibility 
of Dr. Dandy Dave Danforth being sold by the 
Orioles to Brooklyn. If so, here's to his suc- 
cess ; and if he deports himself on the diamond 
as he does in the class room, infirmary, and 
laboratory, success is assured. 

A bowling tournament has been arranged 
between the Psi Omega and Xi Psi Phi frater- 
nities. At a recent meeting, the Psi boys won 
by so slight a margin that the school is assured 
an exciting contest. The contestants were : Jen- 
kins, Spoon, Samuels, Castenens and Holmes 
for Psi Omega, and Beland, Yost, Hoy, Epting 
and Tiss for Xi Psi Phi. Watch for announce- 
ments and attend the games. 

The faculties and class presidents of the dif- 
ferent departments are making an effort to 
secure a general assembly for the University. 
The idea is to have a mass meeting of the stu- 
dent body as often as once in two weeks, and 
secure prominent speakers from the city to de- 
liver an address. This principle was followed 
by Dr. Heatwole in the dental department last 
year, and was a great success. Should the pres- 
ent effort materialize, the dental department 
will doubless respond to the limit of its enroll- 

We extend a cordial invitation to all students 
at the University of Maryland to visit cur de- 
partment and see the work going on. Any 
afternoon the infirmary presents a sight well 
worth the time of any student at this school. 
The visitor will get an idea that the dental man 
is not behind the men of other departments in 
the work required of him before he can secure 
a diploma. You are welcome. Come. 

Messrs. J. Ben Robinson, class of 1914, C. A.

visit to Baltimore, called upon some of his old 
friends at the school. 

Mr. Cawthon, after leaving school, located in 
Selma, Alabama, in the retail business, but 
finding a growing need for a wholesale depart- 
ment, he opened one in connection with his 
retail store, and has been very successful. 

Mr. F. 0. Hawly, of Charlotte, N. C, a: grad- 
uate of this school, accompanied by his wife, 
paid a visit to the school for the purpose of 
getting information about certain chemical 
products in which he is interested. 

After leaving school, Mr. Hawley opened in 
Charlotte what is known as one of the most 
up-to-date drug stores in the South. 

We wish to congratulate Miss A. M. Patter-

Mr. Halliday, class of 1913, also read a paper

The only reason we could dope out the fail- 
ure of the Faculty to give us a dance this year, 
as has been their custom in the past, is that 
perhaps they are getting too old, or they have 
not learned to tango. If so, we advise them 
to get busy. 

The Drug Clerks' Association, of which a 
number of the students and graduates are mem- 
bers, withdrew last month from the American 
Federation of Labor, with which body they 
have been affiliated since last fall. The withr

ulty and the majority of registered druggists 
throughout the city and State. 

The idea of putting the earning capacity of 
a professional man on a labor wage scale basis, 
as the union intended to do, is incompatible 
with the present day earning capacity of pro- 
fessional men, as they are always paid accord- 
ing to their ability. 

There seemed to be much dissension amongst 
the students in regard to one department clos- 
ing one or two days before the other at Thanks- 
giving. In the past, the dean of each depart- 
ment has announced the date for closing be- 
fore the holidays, this date applying to his 
OAvn department. This date has often varied 
from the date set down in the catalogue. To 
do away with this dissension, we suggest a 
meeting of the provost and the deans to ar- 
range a date for closing before each holiday, 
that should apply to the school in general.

Y. M. C. A. Notes. 
The last of the series of lectures planned by 
the Y. M. C. A. was given by Dr. Hough, on 
December 4th. The series was very interesting. 



The muiiber attending was fairly good,. and we 
are sorry that more did not avail themselves 
of the opportunity to attend them. As yet, no 
further series has been planned, but we hope to 
have a niimber of good speakers after Christ- 
mas. The time will be well spent in coming to 
them, and we would urge that more attend. To 
say the least, it is very discouraging to those 
who get speakers who are accustomed to have 
crowds hear them, to come to speak to us and 
then have oulv a small crowd there. 

The Student Volunteer Convention, which 
meets ever^y four j'ears, will meet at Kansas 
Citj', December 29th-January 4tli. The dele- 
gates who will represent the University are 
Bowden, Evans and Peeles. They will go in a 
party composed of delegates from the various 
schools located in Baltimore. 

The Y. M. C. A. has been interested in the 
movement to start an assembly of the entire 
University, at least once a month. We think 
this an admirable way to grow a true "Univer- 
sity spirit." It will bring the different classes 
and departments into much closer touch. At 
present, this plan has been approved by the 
Freshman Medical class, and the entire Dental 
Department. "We would like each class to give 
it its immediate attention. 

The enrollment of members into the Y. M. C. 
A. is gradually increasing, and we give a cor- 
dial invitation to those who are not members 
to join us. We also ask you to use the reading 
room as a place to go between classes. Take 
advantage of the current magazines and jour- 
nals on our tables. 


About this time of the year it behooves the 
ink-slingers to put out a few lines of "copy" 
on the merrj^ Yule-tide and Santa-Claus and 
plum puddin' and New Year's resolutions, et 
al. Far be it from us for this overworked con- 
ventionality to be slighted. But, as a matter 
of fact, there is but little that can be said, and 
even that would be but a sad repetition of the 
thoughts that surge thi'ougli our bosom at the 
idea of presents, and all we can eat, and the 
poor, and sitting on the kitchen stairs M-ith 
Irene and watching for the hands on the clock 

to get together so we can follow the same ex- 
ample. I believe there is some tradition also, 
that with each flash of lightning, or each shoot- 
ing star, we have a perfect right to claim, or is 
it to "snatch" as 'twere, a kiss? In the Ru- 
baiyat there is a thought that runs something 
to the tune of "there is nothing new under the 
sun," and apropos of which, it has been made 
a suggestion before the House of Parliament, 
that in lieu of the fact that so man}' people 
still adhere to that time-honored custom of 
sending others presents at this season of the 
year, and aforementioned i^resents are so often 
so utterly unusable, that instead of adhering 
to the good old-fashioned plan of sending a 
friend a present that has already gone the 
rounds several times, to send him a credit slip 
which can be redeemed at a certain cash or 
trade value with some reliable firm. This will 
meet with a frown by those who view the siib- 
ject from an aesthetic standpoint, and hailed 
with glee by those who look on the mercenary 
end of it ; but this question is meant ' ' a priore ' ' 
for those who pass by the Baltimore Bargain 
House and Kernan's Rathskeller without so 
much as a glance into the wonderfully deco- 
rated windows, and no thought of the good 
cheer that a nice piece of oil-cloth, or a record 
by Caruso would bring to the starving widow 
lady at Relaj^ This is an argument and an ap- 
peal to the out-of-touch-with-the-world individ- 
ual who smokes 10-cent cigars and allows his 
chauffeur to get on the rear end platform of a 
Madison avenue car and blow the vile products 
of combustion of a stogie in your face as you 
enter the tram. And then, there will be averted 
those elements of our race who will deliberately 
Avrap up and send you a hook on Fletcherism, 
or an illustrated volume on Medieval Architect- 
ure in Afghanistan, or some of the later treat- 
ises by Marie Corelli. Ever notice the abomi- 
nable stick-pins a jeweler will sell Edith to 
give her feller, with the admonition that they 
are the "latest thing out?" And even yet, peo- 
ple )iever give such things as an order for a ton 
of coal, or a subscription to Life, or a season 
ticket to the Gayety, or a Tyeos-sphygnoman- 
ometer. T trow not ! The one dissenting vote 
comes from those of us who are neither idiots 
nor rich. But this argument is easily downed 
by the reply that even though the credit-slip 
be almost valueless (picture getting a postage 



stamp with one during the rush hour at Hutz- 
ler's), it will prove that our heart is in the 
right place, Not literally speaking, for we 
know it to be in the north-east corner of the 
thorax, nestled cosily against the diaphragm, 
and held in place by the ligamentum teres ; but 
literally speaking, as we would say when si^eak- 
ing of one who has fallen whilst inlaying at 
roller-skating, thusly: "his heart is in the right 
place, but his feet ain't!" 

You see, the gist of the matter is this, to-wit ; 
you beg, borrow, steal, swipe, and otherwise 
obtain as many credit-slips as you can, as the 
Swedes say, "Conserves les coupons," and then 
when you think you've collected enough to get 
a baby-grand piano yoii send the whole flock to 
the place they were issued from, and find that 
half are over-due by six months, and that all 
you can get for them is your choice of either a 
book on Fletcherism, or an illustrated volume 
on Medieval Architecture in Samoa (or Afghan- 
istan, double choice for the same money here), 
or some of the later) treatises by Marie Corelli !

The Sun-paper is about every-so-often plac- 
ing before the eyes of its perusers the woeful 
happenings of certain violators of the Blue- 
Laws of our honored village. The Necropsy, 
therefore, feels it an unavoidable duty to place 
before the lamps of its readers an interesting 
happening at the studio of the official photog- 
rapher of the realm. The bunch of students 
who pay a certain specified sum for the privi- 
lege of wearing waiter's coats around the hos- 
pital, and cutting classes, and getting some 
friend to answer "operation" (equivalent to 
exempt) , betook themselves to the studio of one 
L, R. Brok, which is on the street the youthful 
call Lex., and the day was Soontag, and the 
hour was about Mittag, and the official squeezer 
of the bulb and regulator of the lens was ready, 
and those who had betookened themselves to be 
betookened were ready and the si;perintendent 
was ready. But lo ! The guardians of the 
peace entered, and seizing two of the number, 
they bore them off straightway to central- 
police-station (capitals indignantly left out), 
and they were pinched, and a great gloom over- 
spread the multitude. Diverse plots were 
hatched, and murmurs of indignation arose 
from many throats ; but the wielder of the hjqjo 

and the follower of Eastman, and the snapper 
of faces (a versatile man, he), betook himself 
to one who Avas in aiTthority, and "permish" 
was obtained (because, you see, the poor boobs 
have to be on the job for twenty-four hours out 
of the twenty-four, and for seven days out of 
the seven, and there was no other opportunity 
afforded them), and the "corps de Hou-smen" 
will adorn the Terra-Mariae just as it has ever 
since the Mariae was published. And a jolly 
good pictui'e it is, don't 'eher know.

Alas, Davidge Hall! How art thou polluted 
and gone astray from the teachings of thy 
many volumes on sanitation and health. Thou 
art utterly spurned and forgotten by the pre- 
ceptors who have delved into the mysteries of 
thy books. Gross are the indignities heaped 
upon thee in thine old age. Lo, even a stench 
has begun to arise from thy lower halls ! Yea, 
even thy lowly wash-room and sanitary parlor 
have an abhorrent odor. Their floors are much 
belittered and in disorder. A most unmistak- 
able stench is now the humble guide for those 
that beforetime knew not thy whereabouts save 
of necessity. Arise, oh mighty man of valor, 
and choke this lurking serpent in our midst, 
before some fatal sickness cometli into our 
midst. Arise and correct this great menace 
and disgrace to our noble University. Be 
speedy in thy work.

The Certification of Pharmacists. 

Dear Doctor : — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly 
investigate New York pharmacies and certify to tlie 
worth of those that meet reasonable modern require- 
ments in stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifi- 
cation. The character of work we have been doing 
for more than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly 
and firmly established us in your esteem and favor- 
ably testifies as to our abilities and methods.

By Randolph Winslow, M.D. 

Pallid Death, who visits impartially the 
hovels of the poor and the palaces of princes, 
has knocked again at our door, and one of our 
most distinguished, most useful, and most loyal 
co-laborers has ansvpered to the call. 

On July 31st, 1913, Eugene Fauntleroy (Jor- 
dell, A. M., M. D., Professor of the History of 
Medicine and Librarian of the Medical iSchool, 
locked the doors of the Library and posted a 
notice that the library would not be open untii 
September 1st. With a light heart and a lithe- 
some step he left the hails that were so dear to 
him, and eagerly anticipated his usual vacation 
ox a month. With his devoted wiie he visited 
the scenes of his boyhood at Chariesiowu, W. 
Va., and with his cup overflowing with delight, 
he spent several weeks in joyous communion 
with his friends in that pleasant town. During 
the latter part of his visit he was seized with 
a painful, but not alarming disorder, and re- 
turned home. His condition was not such as 
to cause apprehension, and it was confidently 
expected that he would be able to resume his 
activities in a few days. This expectation, how- 
ever, was not to be realized, as on the niorning 
of August 27th, he suddenly heard the voice of 
his Maker and, we reverently believe, answered 
"adsum" at the last roll call. 

Dr. Cordell was born at Charlestown, Va., 
now West Virginia, on June 25th, 1843 ; the son 
of Dr. L. O'Connor, and Christine Turner Cor- 
dell. His early education was received at the 
Charlestown Academy, and at the Episcopal 
High School at Alexandria, Va. ; and for a 
short time he was a student at the Virginia 
Military Institute. When he was only eighteen 
years of age the Civil War broke out and, not- 
withstanding the objection of his father, he en- 
listed as a private in Wise's Legion, of the Con- 

federate Army. He served bravely from 1861- 
65, being in many engagements; was wounded 
at Winchester on September 19th, 1863, and 
was a prisoner ot war Irom iViarcli 2, l»tJo, to 
June 19, 18t)5. During the latter part of his 
service he was a commissioned officer with the 
rank of lieutenant, though he was often in 
command of his company. Dr. Cordell girded 
on his sword under a sense of duty to his statu 
and country, but he was essentially a man of 
peace, and when the war ceased his thoughts 
soon turned toward a vocation whose object is 
to save life and relieve suifering, namely, that 
of medicine. He entered tne iv±edical School of 
this University in 186b ana, as was usual in 
those days, graduated two years later in 1868. 
During 1868-69 he was Assistant fhysician at 
the Baltimore Infirmary, now known as the 
University Hospital, where he served under the , 
courtly McSherry and the beloved Chew, and 
the Emperor, Nathan R. Smith; as well as 
under Miltenberger, Johnston, Donaldson and 
Howard, all of them men of great distinction 
and high scholarship. To the influence of these 
teachers, doubtless, was largely due those lofty 
ideals of professional conduct that were so 
characteristic of him. Dr. Cordell entered 
upon practice in the city of Baltimore in 1869, 
but the literary and educational side of his 
profession appealed to him more strongly than 
the practical, and while he continued to en- 
gage in private practice until he was stricken 
down, his enduring reputation rests upon his 
achievements in medical literature ; upon his 
researches in medical archaeology, especially 
that of Maryland; and upon his altruistic and 
philanthropic efforts to relieve the distress and 
augment the happiness of his less fortunate 
felloAv beiugs. While his education was much 
interrupted by the four years of the Civil War, 
he found time subsequently to become an ex- 
ceptionally well educated man, and he acquired 




an excellent knowledge of both Latin and Ger- 
man. The latter language he largely learned by 
attending the services in the German churches, 
while his knowledge of Latin was kept con- 
stantly fresh by his habit of reading daily from 
the classics. He also kept abreast the advances 
K of medicine by assiduous study, and by taking 
advantage of the opportunities for clinical in- 
struction that were offered him. He served as 
Attending Physician to the Baltimore General , 
Dispensary from 1869-72, and thus acquired a 
large experience during the early years of his 
professional life. He was a founder of the 
Woman's Medical College of Baltimore in 1882, 
and was Professor of Materia Medica and Ther- 
apeutics from 1882-84, and of the Practice of 
Medicine from 1884-1903 ; during which time 
he was also Attending Physician to the Good 
Samaritan Hospital. He was the author of 
notable papers upon a number of medical sub- 
jects, and his report of the outbreak of tetanus 
from injuries due to toy pistols, in 1881, is a 
' classic. Time does not allow a further enum- 
eration of his contributions of a strictly scien- 
tific character. 

From 1870-71 he was Librarian of the Medi- 
cal and Chirurgieal Faculty, and again from 
1880-87. He had here unlimited access to medi- 
cal books and journals, and developed a close 
acquaintance with medical literature. During a 
portion of this time he was also co-editor, with 
Dr. Ashby, of the Maryland Medical Journal, 
and the issues of that journal during that time 
are filled with articles written in his graceful 
but trenchant style. In 1882, in conjunction 
with Professor Ashby, the writer and several 
others, he was a founder of the Woman's Medi- 
cal College of Baltimore, and his first experi- 
ence as a teacher of medical students was ob- 
tained in this small but excellent school, which 
died after an existence of twenty-eight years. 
Through his efforts the course of instruction 
was lengthened from two to three sessions, at a 
time when no other medical school in the city, 
and but few in the whole country required 
more than two sessions. He was also instru- 
mental in having a preliminary examination 
adopted to determine the fitness of prospective 
students to begin the study of medicine, long 
before it was done here or elsewhere in this 
country: and to still farther add to the list of 

his far-sighted and constructive activities for 
the betterment of medical education, he sug- 
gested the meeting together of representatives 
of the local medical colleges to consider im- 
provements in medical instruction ; and from 
this conference went out the call to the colleges 
of this country that resulted in the formation 
of the Association of American Medical Col- 
leges, which has had siich a potent influence in 
the betterment of medical education in the 
United States. Cordell's work has been for- 
gotten or was never recognized; and the part 
played by the College of Physicians and Sur- 
gons, The Baltimore Medical College, The 
Woman's Medical College of Baltimore, and the 
University of Maryland in creating a senti- 
ment in favor of radical changes in medical re- 
quirements has also long since been lost sight 
of. In many other ways was Dr. Cordell's al- 
truism exhibited in a bountiful measure. In- 
deed it was a well spring within him, constant- 
ly impelling him to new activities in behalf of 
those who were in need of succor. Thus he was 
President and chief worker of the Hospital Re- 
lief Association for several years; one of the 
founders for the Home for Incurables, an ex- 
cellent institution, now in, useful operation, for 
the care of a peculiarly helpless and distress- 
ing class of cases ; and more recently, the Home 
for Widows and Orphans of Physicians, now 
located on Bolton street in this city. He cer- 
tainly exemplified the scriptural injunction: 
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself"; 
indeed, in many respects he loved his neighbor 
more than himself. His unselfish efforts in so 
many directions were recognized and appreci- 
ated, and he was the recipient of many tokens 
of respect and esteem. He was elected presi- 
dent of many of the local medical societies, and 
from 1902-4 he was President of the Johns Hop- 
kins Hospital Historical Club, and in 1903-4 he 
was President of the Medical and Chirurgieal 
Faculty of Maryland, the highest honor within 
the gift of the medical profession of this State. 
As has been stated, he was a prolific writer, 
and was the author of numerous papers on his- 
torical, medical and literary subjects; but it is 
as a medical historiographer that he will be 
best known to those who come after us. In 
1891 he published his "Historical Sketch of the 
University of Maryland," and in 1907 brought 



out in two volumes an amplified history of the 
University, covering the first century of its 
existence. In 1903 he published his "Medical 
Annals of Maryland," which embraced a com- 
plete history of the physicians of Maryland 
from the time of the founding of the Medical 
and Chirurgieal Faculty of Maryland in 1799 
to the celebration of its centennial in 1899. 
These works are exhaustive in character, and, 
as he says in the preface to the Medical Annals : 
"He has striven to produce a volume which 
will, for all time to come, be regarded as 
authoritative in all matters relating to the 
medical history of the State. ' ' I imagine there 
will be but little added to these histories by 
future historians, and that they will be authori- 
tative for all time to come. In 1903 Dr. Cordell 
was appointed librarian of the Medical Library 
of the University, and Honorary Professor of 
the History of Medicine, later being advanced 
to the full professorship of the History of Med- 
icine. At the timei of his appointment the 
Library consisted of a few hundred dust-cov- 
ered, ancient volumes; at the time of his de- 
mise, 14,000 or more boofes had been accumu- 
lated, indexed and arranged for use and study. 
This phenomenal development was almost en- 
tirely due to his activity, zeal and acquaintance 
with both books and physicians. With but small 
financial assistance from the Faculty, he gath- 
ered this large collection from near and far, 
and truly erected for himself a monument, let 
us hope, more durable than brass. The Library 
was the child of his old age. and he regarded it 
with almost parental affection. He nursed and 
nourished it, treated its ailments and healed 
its bruises, set its fractures and sutured its 
wounds. He had an affectionate interest in 
each book, and held many of them as beloved 
friends and companions. I must not linger 
longer in this interesting field, but must devote 
the remainder of the time allotted to me to a 
consideration of his intense loyalty to his Alma 
Mater. He was always a most loyal alumnus, 
but as he advanced in years this love became 
almost an obsession. At first, his thought was 
for the medical school, and with far-sighted 
vision he saw the day approaching when the 
unendowed medical school would not be able 
to exist. Twenty years ago he sounded the 
alarm and it fell upon unheeding ears. Again, 

and again, the tocsin rang, and at last the deaf 
ears heard and the sleeping conscience was 
awakened, and effort was seriously begun to 
raise funds for a permanent endowment. With 
the draAving together of the various depart- 
ments in 1907, during the centennial celebra- 
tion, the University idea became firmly estab- 
lished, and Cordell transferred his interest 
largely from the medical school to the Univer- 
sitj' as a whole; and with his motto of "toti 
non partibus," he founded the General Alumni 
Association, and began the accumulation of a 
fund for general University purposes. In these 
several efforts, considering the lack of coopera- 
tion and the paucity of his opportunities, he 
accomplished wonders, and if the institution 
shall be able to withstand the pressure of these 
strenuous times, it will be due largely to the 
work and efforts of this man. In further- 
ance of this object, he established a University 
monthly periodical, aptly named "Old Mary- 
land," devoted to the interests of the whole 
University; and he continued to publish this 
paper until his death. Old Maryland not only 
contained many articles and items of unusual 
interest, but it will always be of special value 
as recording Dr. Cordell 's own experience as 
a soldier in the Confederate Army from 1861-5. 
This publication is considered of such value in 
binding the different departments together and 
as a means of communication with the Alumni, 
that it has been decided to continue to publish 
it under the direction of the General Alumni 

Allusion has already been made to Dr. Cor- 
dell 's efforts to accumulate funds for the en- 
dowment of the different departments; efforts 
that were worthy of greater fruition, though 
they did bring good results. For this unre- 
quited labor, this labor of love, the University 
of Maryland will be eternally his debtor, and 
in the time to come he will be honored as the 
one who first called attention to the absolute 
necessity of an ample endowment, and who first 
attempted to collect funds for this purpose. It 
is proposed to erect a tablet to his memory now 
in -one of the halls of the University, but some 
time in the future a more fitting memorial 
should be dedicated to him. 

Dr. Cordell was a man of positive convic- 
tions, and was inclined to be rather intolerant 



' of those M'ho differed with him, but he always 
stood for righteousness, and for those things 
that were true, and honest, and just, and pure. 
We have si;stained an irrejDarable loss. We 
may secure another librarian avIio shall be able 
to discharge the duties of the office efficiently ; 

► we may appoint another lecturer on the His- 
tory of Medicine who shall be equally satisfac- 
tory, but we cannot replace the loyalty, the 
enthusiasm, the altruism and the impelling per- 
sonality that were combined in Professor Eu- 
gene Fauntleroy Cordell. 


By Louis A. Buie, Junior Medical Student. 

Do men have to be forced to be gentlemen? 
Is it necessary for its to pledge men to the effect 
that they will not commit a wrong? Do we 
have to w^ateh men in order to keep them from 

In the lower stages of civilization where the 
undeveloped brain exists, where people have 
no idea of the real difference between right and 
wrong, where the standard is measured only by 
personal gain or loss, we find that stringent 
means are necessary to bring aboiit proper 
conditions. The man with a criminal instinct 
has to be guarded in order that he may be kept 
from committing treachery. The child must 
be told that he will be punished if he mis- 
behaves, because he is not capable of under- 
standing the true significance of doing wrong. 
The schoolboy must be reprimanded in order 
|that he may realize the value of upright con- 
iuct. It is only in conditions such as these that 
is practicable to use this method in our ef- 
forts to establish honesty, truth and straight- 
forwardness among a class of individuals. 

Honesty is an inherent principle which 'is a 
fiart of every true gentleman. A sense of honor 
|s a characteristic Avhich is foremost in the 
lake-up of such a person. Those who are 
^apable of thinking for themselves, and who do 
P-Ot possess this quality, have not the power of 
accepting it as a part of themselves when foree- 
ible means of impression are employed in their 
jehalf. These people may refrain from doing 

a wrong because they fear the consequences, 
but such an act is not prompted by a sense of 
honor. If it is necessary to obtain a man's 
oath that he will not commit a misdeed, to my 
mind, you can place no confidence either in the 
man or his pledge. As it is in the case of those 
whom we find in other walks of life, so it is 
with us as students in the various branches of 
our professions. And are there any profes- 
sions which concern the welfare of humanity 
to a greater degree ? Is there any phase of life 
activity in which honor should be more deeply 
rooted? Undoubtedly, law and medicine have 
the highest of ethical codes. 

I present my subject in this manner in order 
that I may bring more forcibly to your minds 
the lamentable fact that our University has 
existed all these years without an Honor Sys- 
tem. It is true that four years ago it was 
initiated on a flimsy foundation into the Med- 
ical Department (all due credit to its support- 
ers), and has finally obtained a permanent foot- 
hold there, but this represents only one-fourth 
of Avhat is noAv a very large university. Why 
should not this very laudable system dominate 
the activities of all of the University depart- 

The Honor System is a matter which con- 
cerns the student body alone. We are here to 
perfect ourselves in our various professions, 
and it should be our desire to gain as much 
knoAvledge along these lines as possible. Can 
we do it by "pulling the wool" over our in- 
structors' eyes when we come to our examina- 
tions? Can we learn anything by depending 
on concealed hints for our answers? No; and 
furthermore if we use these methods of obtain- 
ing a supposed advantage now, it is almost a 
certainty that the same methods will be used 
when more serious interests are concerned. 
Students who do such things are an undesirable 
element and should be eliminated from all pos- 
sibility of ever being turned out to practice in 
professions where the most vital interests and 
even the lives of the people are at stake. 

"But," one will say, "I will not spy on and 
report my classmate, for that would be any- 
thing but a manly act." 

Obviously this man does not understand the 
true significance or purpose of the Honor Sys- 
tem. This system gets rid of all possibility of 
the necessity of such an act. Would that same 



man warn me if he saw a burglar stealing my 
valuables? Yes; because he would want to 
save my belongings for me and at the same 
time place the criminal where he would not be 
dangerous. Why not save the life of someone 
by placing a man, who will be unfitted for the 
practice of his profession, where he will not be 
dangerous ? 

In the Medical Department of the University 
the Honor System is, as I have stated, on a firm 
foundation. It obtained its foothold in 1910, 
and is now a part of the student enrricnliim. 
There is one thing that could be added to it 
which would do away with the necessity of 
signing the "Honor Roll" and also pledge 
signing (which to a miscreant means nothing 
and to a gentleman is no better than his word). 
Let a simple statement to the effect that the 
prospective student agrees in every particular 
with the principles set forth in the Honor Sys- 
tem, and that he will support it, be inserted on 
the back of the matriculation card. In order 
that he may understand thoroughly the princi- 
ples of this system it might be advisable to in- 
scribe its provisions in the University catalogue. 
Then, when the application for entrance be 
made, allow him to matriciilate only on condi- 
tion that he agrees with this statement (not a 
pledge) and will sign it. 

We, of the Medical Department, recommend 
this system very highly to the other depart- 
ments, and appeal to them for co-operation in 
our endeavor to establish it in the entire Uni- 


Don't be backward in sending in your sub- 
scription. Above all, don't feel slighted if you 
are not personally solicited, as those in charge 
of the fund believe the work of Doctor Cordell 
in behalf of the University of Maryland suffi- 
ciently meritorious to render a man to man 
appeal unnecessary. Surely enough interest 
should be taken in this movement to forever 
perpeti;ate the memory of a man who devoted 
a large part of his time to the upbuilding of the 
University. The committee thanks those who 
have already subscribed, and earnestly solicits 
further contributions so as to make the memo- 
rial worthy of the man to whose memory it is 
to be erected.

large and spacious libraiy, -which is now in 
Davidge Hall, situated at the corner of Lom- 
bard and Greene streets. It contains a full and 
complete selection of books for the study of 
Law, Medicine and Dentistry, comprising in 
all about twenty-three thousand books, five 
thousand of which are law books, consisting of 
a very large selection of text-books on the vari- 
ous branches of the law, as well as valuable 

encyclopedias which treat on all branches of 
the law and which have numerous annotations 
which bring them and keep them strictly up to 
date in every particular. Also numerous vol- 
umes in which are cited the various decisions 
of the various courts of the country, including 
the United States Supreme Court, the various 
other Federal courts and the courts of the 
various States. Also the decisions of the vari- 
ous courts of England from the time of the 
Revolution up to the present time. 

The other eighteen thousand books are on 
the vai'ious subjects of Medicine and Dentistry, 
and are very carefully indexed and classified 
so that they are easily accessible and can be 
gotten very readily. 

A great deal of credit is due the librarians, 
who have the care and welfare of the students 
and books at heart, and it is their constant en- 
deavor at all times to be kind and obliging 
to any and all students who may be in search 
of any knowledge or assistance which may be 
in their power to render, and they can at all 
times be called upon (during the hours that the 
library may be open) to render such assistance 
as the student may be in need of. 

A number of necessary changes in the library 
are in course of operation that will add to the 
comfort and welfare of the students who use 
the libi'ary, of which there are a great num- 
ber, and as soon as the changes can be made 
they will be done. 

The library is such that the students who 
have to use it should take the greatest pride 
and interest in, and should at all times try and 
bend every effort to keep it up to its present 
standard and to try, as far as possible, to raise 
it up to such an extent that they can look back, 
in the years to come, with a great source of 
delight at the spacious and efficient library that 
they were instrumental in upbuilding. 

The various instructors of the various sub- 
jects are cordially invited to visit the library 
so that they can readily see what material 
they have to advise the students under their 
care to select to get the best results, and all 
and every recommendation from the instructors 
will be very carefully and conscientiously con- 

Let us all work for the best interests of our 




We cannot too strongly urge our readers to 
patronize the advertisers in "Old Maryland." 
We need them to make "Old Maryland" a go. 
Therefore, when you can, buy their goods, you 
help us. Advertisers must be shown results, 
else they discontinue. With your aid we can 
demonstrate that advertising in "Old Jlary- 
land" pays. 

Some additional illumination has been pro- 
vided in Davidge Hall Library. We wish that 
illumination might have been as easily obtaineci 
on some of the obstruse questions given in our 
recent examinations. Many of us would like to 
have it poured in without labor. 


It has been officially announced that Mr. 
Randolph Barton, Jr., is to conduct the course 
on Banking Law to be given in the second term 
of the senior year. 

We respectfully submit to the Hospital Com- 
mittee that the position of medical superinten- 
dent is of sufficient importance and dignity to 
call for a private office in which the superin- 
tendent can carry on the routine work of the 
hospital unhampered. It will be asked, "Where 
is the room?" Can any sane person give one 
sound reason why the superintendent of nurses 
should occupy the most prominent office in the 
hospital? Perhaps we are wrong, but it appeals 
to us that her office should be in the nurses' 
home. At any rate, in our opinion the medical 
superintendent should occupy the office now 
occupied by the superintendent of nurses, so 
that he will be in a position to genteelly wel- 
come visitors to the hospital and meet his statf 
as occasion demands. As matters stand at pres- 
ent he has no privacy. 

We merely throw it out as a suggestion tlial 
the work of the medical superintendent woulil 
be greatly facilitated if there were an assistant 
superintendent free of assignment. This m:i,u 
could officially answer questions of visitors, 
look out for the conduct of the dispensary, and 
relieve the superintendent in many other ways. 
Moreover, a superintendent would be in train- 
ing to actually assume office if occasion de- 
manded. Just think of the chagrin of the 
superintendent when sent an urgent call to 
come to the office immediately to see a gentle- 
man when plied with the question, "Doctor, 
can I visit Number 4, Ward C?" This is only 
an example of one of the many foolish ques- 
tions directed to the superintendent during the 
course of a day. The assistant superintendent 
could look out for matters of this sort and thus 
leave the superintendent free to engage in more 
profitable labors. 

The last two lectures upon Legal Ethics will 
be given by Mr. Barton during the early part of 
the next term. The exact dates have not yet 
been announced. 

Mr. German H. Emory has resigned as an 
associate judge of the Practice Court, and Mr. 
Edwin T. Dickerson has been appointed to fill 
the vacancy. Mr. Dickerson will assume his 
new duties at the beginning of the second 

In an interview with the judges of the Prac- 
tice Court it was learned that while they are 
very much pleased with the worE of the stu- 
dents, yet they are surprised to discover by 
an examination of the records for the first term 
that a number of the men have not come up 
to the required standard in attendance, thus 
endangering an otherwise good record. We 
understand that a notice is to be sent out noti- 
fying all men whose work or attendance is 
unsatisfactory. It is hoped that this warning 
will be sufficient. 

It might be well for students to remember 
that satisfactory work in the Practice Court is 
a condition of graduation and that such work 
cannot be passed upon as satisfactory unless 
the attendance is up to the required average.

On January 15th, at 11 o'clock, the students 
of the various departments of the University 
were gathered in Chemical Hall to hear an 
address by Dr. W. D. Wetherford, of Nash- 
ville, Tenn., whose subject was "Problems That 
Pace the University Man in His Educational 
Career. ' ' The first need of the student, he 
claimed, was fairmindedness in his search for 
truth, a willingness to accept truth from both 
sides of a question, and then follow that truth 
after having once found it and base one's ac- 
tions upon it. His second problem was the 
need of a common honesty in the high places 
built necessarily upon that virtue as it had 
been practiced from youth up at home and in 
school and college. He congratulated the Uni- 
versity upon instituting the honor system. 

Dr. Wetherford next spoke of the nation- 
wide irreverence of the American people for 
sacred things which was making for them an 
unsavory name in other lands. 

Carelessness in speech, said the Doctor, in 
regard to unclean things is as harmful to the 
physical make-up of a student as to his morals. 
The man whose thought, speech or act smacks 
of uncleanliness is fast losing a hold on him- 
self and is doomed to failure. Set up a high 
standard for yourselves, young men, and fol- 
low it. 

The speaker was introduced to the students 
by Dr. Thomas Fell, who announced that each 
month thereafter there would be arranged a 
joint student gathering to hear some speaker 
of note lecture upon the current topics of the 
day with the idea of furthering the University 
spirit of unitJ^ All regular lectures were sus- 
pended for the hour. "Old Maryland" sug- 
gests that a lecture of this nature given be- 
tween four and five in the afternoon would 
allow more members of the Law Department to 
be present and not be any more inconvenient 
for the men from the other departments. 
Chemical Hall was so crowded that without 
doubt a larger hall will be chosen for the meet- 
ing next month. 

to celebrate tlie old time-honored custom of 
the "Noche Buena. " 

Under the auspices of the club a feast was 
organized — intended at first for the members of 
the club, only, but later the enthusiasm grew 
rapidly throughout the city, in which there are 
many Spanish-speaking students, and they de- 
clared their intention of co-operating in the 
feast. In view of such enthusiasm, the club had 
onl.y one alternative, and that was to admit the 
friends of the members, and so it was done. 
Then we had an enrollment of nearly eighty 
individuals for the celebration. This is prob- 
ably the largest body of Spanish-speaking stu- 
dents ever gathered together under one roof 
in this city. This marks a great achievement 
for the club, as it demonstrates that the club 
has outside sympathizers, as well as in our old 
"Alma Mater." 

The feast took place at one of the local ho- 
tels, and the "menu" was an exquisite one — 
approaching as nearly as possible to what in 
our countries adorn the tables for the season. 
Although Bacchus was freely gifted, good 
order reigned during the enjoyment. There 
were exchanges of toasts between the mem- 
bers. Those that require special mention were : 
Mr. J. B. Mallen, who is noted as a speaker; 
Messrs. Garrido, De Castro and Rodriguez 
were also very eloquent. Mr. A. Balart offi- 
ciated as toastmaster. 

It is a customary affair in the Latin-speaking 
countries to celebrate the "Noche Buena" — 
that is, Christmas Eve — so that, although away 
from their homes, the members of Latin- 
American Club thought it no more than proper

Dr. Herbert Harlan, president of the Mary- 
laud Board of Medical Examiners and a mem- 
ber of the Executive Committee of the Federa- 
tion of State Medical Boards of the United 
States, desires to call particular attention to 



the coming meetings in Chicago, 111., February 
23-25, 1914, both, dates inclusive, at the Con- 
gress Hotel, of the Conferences of the Council 
on Medical Education and the Council on 
Health and Public Instruction, and of the an- 
nual meeting of the Association of American 
Medical Colleges and of the Federation of State 
Medical Boards of the United States, it is im- 
portant that as many representatives as possi- 
ble from all the Medical Colleges in the State, 
as vrell as from the Board of Medical Exam- 
iners, be present. 

Dr. John B. Bay, secretary of the American 
Otological Society, announces that the annual 
meeting of the organization will be held at the 
Hotel Chelsea, Atlantic City, N. J., May 27 and 
28, 1914. 

The following letter from Dr. Hemm^ter 
speaks for itself. It is up to the students to 
show what they are made of. Sing for the 
glory of Old Maryland.

treated as such by the faculty and instructors, 
hence it follows that we may be arrested for 
false pretenses. All of our professors have 
noticed it — one in particular — a gentleman 
every inch of him — has gone so far as to stop 
lecturing until the noises subsided. 

"We are "college boys" but please let as act 
as men during lectures. 

Secondly : — 

Why ai'e so many "Rebel yells" thrown to 
the winds u.pon the entry of some of our pro- 
fessors ? 

We are trying, or should at least, try to 
learn something — then why try to scare them 
(the instructors) with the wierdest of all 
noises? That which has been said above ap- 
l)lies here as well. 

Not only that it sounds disrespectful — not 
that it is meant as such but that is how it 
appears. Such conduct would discredit a 
freshman class — don't you think that it's out 
of place in ours? If you're too tired men- 
tally (?) or physically to gently applaud upon 
the entrance of the various professors sit still 
and you will be doing much toward yourself 
and your class to gain the respect and confi- 
dence of your instructors.

This is a personal appeal to the Junior Class 
and it should be taken in the same spirit as 
it is advanced: 

First :— 

Why is there so much noise, murmurs and 
other disconcerting noises during lectures? It 
seems to us as if we have not yet gotten out of 
the knickerbocker age even tho' we are study-

We are pleased to note the recent victory of

Law — Senior. 

The Law Department is to be congratulated 
upon the fact that a student from one of the 
other departments has sought legal aid from 
one of our graduate number. 

Come one, come all, gentlemen ! Now is your 
chance. A year hence there will be a fee due 
and owing which you can ill afford in your 
early practice. If you feel grateful enough for 
the legal service rendered to suggest remunera- 
tion, we will be glad to reciprocate by having 
some swear-provoking tooth pixlled, a bone set, 
or a cough drop compounded. There is nothing 
like co-operation, friends. Keep it up ! 

Mr. Ellis Levin has been elected editor of 
Terra Mariae from the Senior Day Class of 
the Law Department in place of Mr. Arthur B. 
Connelly, whose resignation was accepted with 
extreme regret. 

The telephone formerly located on the main 
floor of the Law Department has been moved 
to the entry of Davidge Hall for the better ac- 
commodation of the general student body. 

The Law School has just cause to be proud 
of the following tribute recently paid to a 
member of the Senior Night Class, which ap- 
peared in the Evening Sun of January 14th : 

"The workingmen's compensation law that 
is to be presented to the Legislature by Senator 
Hammond is, in large measure, the result of 
the efforts and investigations of a student in 
the University of Maryland. This young man 
is Arthur E. Hamm. 

"But for his exhaustive study of the phil- 
osophy and comparative legislation of the sub- 
ject it is not likely that any of our busy legis- 





lators would have found it possible to develop 
so comprehensive a study as he enabled Senator 
Hammond to construct." 

Judge Harlan has taken our genial and witty 
Eddie Stayler with him to the Fidelity Com- 
pany as secretary. As someone remarked, 
"Eddie is the luckiest devil in Christendom." 
So think we all of us. He has our best wishes 
for success. 

Knotts has been paying some old bills since 
the Christmas vacation. Times are indeed dull ! 

Judge Stockbridge in International Law quiz,

"Mr. Jones, can you give me any account 
of the history of Mediation in adjusting inter- 
national differences as resorted to during the 
Middle Ages?" ' • 

Jones, in confusion: "Er-ah, no sir." 

Judge Stockbridge, dryly : ' ' Well, it is not 
mentioned in your text-book nor in any other 
M'orks to which vou mav have access." 

Judge Gorter, lecturing: "Entries in a 
family missal are admissible in evidence. Gen- 
tlemen, what is a family missal 1 ' ' 

Rosenthal : ' ' Something the housewife uses

Judge Gorter: "I would not have known 
it myself if I had not looked it up in a dic- 
tionary. It's a prayer book." 

Judge Gorter continues to sjDcak of nervous- 
ness while delivering lectures in Anatomical 
Hall. Unless the Medical authorities take im- 
mediate action in properly laying the spooks 
of cadavers in that building they will have a 
distinguished patient on their hands in the 
Lunacy Ward of the University Hospital. We 
trust this serious matter will soon be looked

Judge Gorter says that a man ran into a

The Law Department congratulates Mr. Si- 
mon E. Sobeloff, of the Intermediate Day Class, 
npon his recent appointment as bailiff in the 
court of Chief Judge Morris A. Soper to suc- 
ceed Mr. E. M, Stayler, bailiff and secretary to 
Judge Harlan. It is pleased also to learn of 
the additional honor conferred upon Mr. So- 
beloff' in being made Judge Soper 's secretary. 

Mr. Sobeloff for some time acted as page in 
the House of Representatives, being appointed 
by Congressman Kromniller. Mr. William F. 
Broening, Avho ^vas a former secretary to Con- 
gressman Kronmiller, took Mr. Sobeloff into 
his office as clerk when he became State's At- 
tornej^ It was this position Mr. Sobeloff oceu- 
pied when he was made bailiff'. Without doubt 
Mr. Sobeloff has a brilliant future before him.

He taught us as a dignified professor, and 
yet in all his dignity there ever dwelt that in- 
conquerable Eastern Shore hospitable com- 
raderie. He left no question unsettled. Gifted 
with a thorough appreciation of the tardiness 
of the lay mind to grasp the intricate techni- 
calities of his subject, he led us patiently 
through the maze of principles and exceptions

would have become exasperated and discour- 
aged. His voice rising and falling, coaxing and

the right and logic of his view should enter

The Dental Clinic at the University. 

It will be of great interest, not only to those 
connected with this school, but to the public 
in general, that in our midst there is being 
established a most interesting charity, namely. 
the Free Dental Clinic of the Dental School at 
the University. 

During the past couple of seasons several 
thousand persons have been treated for various 
dental ailments, among the patients being in- 
mates of the various charitable homes, also 
patients from the charity organiations of the 


We offer vou the most delicious, tasty and nutricious food in the 
cleanest possible environment with rather small prices. 




It seems strange, though true, that only re- 
cently general systemic ailments such as arthri- 
tis and gastro-intestinal sej)sis are attributed to 
pathological conditions of the dental members, 
when before such a thing as necessary dental 
work on decayed teeth was generally ignored, 
both by the laity and some professionals as 

As a consequence many physicians and hos- 
pitals refer their patients to either the dental 
practioner or dental dispensary for relief, and 
after the mouth has been put in order attempt 
general treatment — which proves successful. 
Now, while we have a great many medical 
clinics in this city receiving much aid, such a 
thing as aid to a dental clinic is comparatively 
unknown, or slighted, anyway. 

During the past several seasons over one 
thousand (1,000) school children have been 
treated along with a proportionate number of 
grown-ups — consequently the number of cures 
are greater — so the provision and establish- 
ment of such an affair is of great importance to 
the public, and should be fostered and encour- 

One of the finest institutions in this coun- 
try — if not in the world — is the Forsythe Insti- 
tute of Boston, where free dental work is given 
for the benefit of its citizens. Each season hun- 
dreds of eases are looked after and cared for 
which otherwise would not be taken care of 
at all. 

While the dental infirmary is doing its best, 
yet substantial aid, or the founding of a clinic 
similar to the Forsythe Institute in Boston, 
would be a vast means for doing good and 
practical work for our citizens, and should 
engage the philanthrophy of some kind-hearted 
person who wishes to be of service to his fellow- 

The dental infirmary is in charge of Dr. 
Frank J. Valentine, whose able assistants are 
Drs. Walter B. Green and Fitzroy Phillips. 

During last season well over one thousand 
persons were taken care of, and this year the 
clinic will greatly surpass this number. ' Inter- 
est and observation will be kindly received and 
the work explained in detail to visitors.

advise that notice be given of further informa- 
tion concerning their movements. 

Dr. Drew, the secretary of the Board of 
Dental Examiners, who visited the University 
January 12th, was received and welcomed by 
the Dean and instructors present. His visit 
was appreciated, as Dr. DreAV maintains, as he 
has always, for a high standard of dental edu- 
cation, professional merit and skill. 

The meeting of the National Association of 
Dental Faculties will be held in Buffalo, Janu- 
ary 26th. 

Dr. T. 0. Heatwole will represent the Uni- 
versity Dental School. 

The meeting of the Institute of Dental Peda- 
gogics will be held in Buffalo on January 

Drs. A. H. Patterson, L. W. Farinholt and 
E. E. Cruzen have been selected to attend, hear 
the discussions on dental education, and repoi-t 
on the meeting to further the advancciiuMit of 
dental teaching at the University. 


Practically all the senior class spent their 
vacation out of the city. Some of the more 
industrious ones — Radice, Guerra, Holmes, 
Ackrill, Olive, Bundy, Bell, and a few others — 
remained to make Dr. Patterson's plate; to do 
Dr. Baskin's orthondia requirements, or to 
construct Dr. Farinholt 's bridge work. 

George J. Whalen and J. H. Samuel, two 
popular seniors, spent their vacation time in 
New York, taking in the sights of Broadway 
from the Bowery to 125th street. It is re- 
ported they visited all the cafes in their quest 
for excitement, winding up their season of 
dissipation on New Year's eve at the Little 
Princess. Samuel says, "that at this particular 
place George's conduct was anything but be- 
coming a modest head-of-a-f amily. " 

The friends of Messrs. Goldstrom and Stein 
will be pleased to know that they have termi- 
nated their nomadic existence by making a 
permanent location at 708 W. Fayette street. 
Mr. Goldstrom has already been heard to say 
that he expects to find a room alone, so we 

Mr. and Mrs. W. F. O'Neil spent their holi- 
days at West Rutland, Vermont, visiting Mr. 
'Neil's parents. 

It is reported that our good friend "Bones" 
Hyde came back from West Virginia with his 
record book full of New Year's resolutions. 
Here's to the success of their keeping, "Bones." 

Mr. E. J. Lariviere has been confined to the 
hospital for the past week, but is now con- 
valescing. Others of our class who have re- 
cently been on the hospital list are Messrs. 
Carvalho and Asking. 

The Orange Trust, Avhich was organized, and 
which did some business during the holidays, 
has been declared as coming under the Heat- 
wole Dis-trust Act, and dissolved. Its treas- 
urj'- funds, amounting to 74 cents, have been 
confiscated and further attempts to carry on 
business by this company will lead to criminal 
proceedings being brought against the indi- 
viduals composing it. No one seems to be able 
to place the blame for this nefarious combina- 
tion's existence, but it is known that Radice 
delivered the 74 cents. 

The second bowling contest between Xi Psi 
Phi and Psi Omega fraternities was condiicted

On the afternoon of December the 19th, the 
two regular demonstrators in the infirmary, 
Drs. Rea and Valentine, and the secretary, Mrs. 
Martha E. Hicks, were made presents by the 
student body as a token of the esteem in which 
they are held. Mrs. Hicks was the recipient of 
a beautiful traveling bag, presented by the 
senior class ; Drs. Rea and Valentine each a pair 
of gold cuff links by the Xi Psi Phi and Psi 
Omega fraternities. Mr. Robinson of the senior 
class made the presentation speech. Mrs. Hicks 
received her present from the hands of Mr. 
Ruppersberger, Dr. Rea from Miss Carter, and 
Dr. Valentine from Miss Ruff. 

Mr. M. G. Guerra suffered a rather serious 
fall on Tuesday evening, January 13th. He is 
now undergoing treatment by Dr. Bay for a 
badly strained arm. 

Junior Notes. 

The Junior class finally got most of the mem- 
bers together for the picture for Terra Maria. 
This was the second attempt and it was be- 
ginning to look like our class would not be 
represented in the annual publication. 

Our renowned classmate, Mr. Dave Dauforth, 
has recently signed a contract to play another 
season with the Baltimore Orioles. The Federal 
League was attempting to alienate Dave from 
the International League, but Dave is too wise 
to drop for an uncertain proposition. 

The question of a junior class banquet has 
been proposed and is now being considered by 
the members. It is to be hoped we will be able 
to get together this year for a social evening. 

The other morning Mr. Walker startled the 
class by giving some good fatherly advice to 
some of our careless men. He says "more 
sleep 'o nights and more attention to school 
work in the day would better qualify some of 
the fellows to think school duties. 

The junior class has been strengthened by 
the addition of Mr. Johnson, from Maine. John- 
son spent his first year and a half at B. M. C. 
and returns the latter half of this year to fit 
into regular work. 

The boys (and girls) are all busy doing their 
required specimen work and preparing for ex- 
aminations. This mid-year brings five exami- 
nations and with so much other work it re- 
({uires about all the time at the students' dis- 

As a result of the recent test in orthodontia 
given the juniors by Dr. Baskin, occasion was 
taken by this instructor to compliment the 
work done by our class. We appreciate the 
notice given to the excellent work we are at- 
tempting to do. 

Freshman Notes. 

Dr. J. S. Geiser, demonstrator in prosthetic 
technics, has announced that the contest for 
the freshman medal for best vulcanite plate 
will close on March 1st. The boys are taking 
great interest and some very fine work is being 

We had hoped that before this time a basket- 
ball game might have been played between our 
men and the medical freshmefi. But due to 
the lateness of the return from holiday vacation 
tile games have been postponed to a later date. 

The freshmen are all happy since their night- 
ly trips to B. M. C. have been discontinued. 
We are now through with our dissecting and 
are glad to have a few evenings to ourselves. 

The mid-year examination bee has gotten into 
the freshman's bonnet, and he is studying for 
all he is worth. They may not be bad, but they 
look scarey at a distance. 

We are sorry to announce the Avithdrawal 
from school of our classmate J. R. Wood from 
North Carolina. Circumstances, over which he 
had no control made it necessary for him to 
discontinue his work with us. 

At a recent meeting of the freshmen class, 
Nathanson arose and stated that class colors 
did not suit him. Why then did the embryo 
dentist from Harford Road wear his arm band 
pinned across the front of his sweater for two 
months ? 



Pharmacy. (Graduate) 

Dr. Amelia A. Soniienburg, who recently 
passed the Pharmacy State Board, is now do- 
ing excellent work at the Union Protestant 
Infirmary. After February, Drs. Sonnenburg 
and Carrie S. Mosse will join the class in Phar- 
maceutical Law, to be conducted by Prof. 
Burger at the University of Maryland. Con- 
gratulations, young ladies 1 

Dr. Herbert Schoenrich, member of 1903 
graduating class, who recently passed the med- 
ical examination for the entrance into the 
Medical Corps, Maryland National Guard, has 
been assigned to the Fifth Infantry, with rank 
of first lievitenant. 

Dr. Schoenrich received a probationery com- 
mission in the Medical Corps last spring and 
was temporarily assigned to the Fifth Infan- 
try, accompanying the regiment to Belair in the 
recent State encampment. 

Dr. Schoenrich also received his M.D. degree 
at the University of Maryland. 

We wish to express our sincerest sympathy 
for Dr. Charles J. Caspari, Jr., who met with 
an unfortunate accident the day before Christ- 

While walking across the parlor floor of his 
home, he tripped over a rug, and fell breaking 
his collar bone. 

When school was resumed January 6th, Dr. 
Caspari appeared in the lecture room, as usual 
with his right arm in a sling. 

The students of the Pharmacy Department 
wish to express their thanks and appreciation 
to the' doctor, for lecturing to us in the con- 
dition he was in. 

Dr. Caspari has always shown the same 
fighting spirit in all his work and considering 
how active he has been, it must be torture to 
him, to be handicapped by his serious acci-

Y. M. C. A. Notes. 

The quadrennial meeting of The Student 
Volunteer Movement, held in Kansas City, 
Missouri, December 29th — January 4th inclu- 
sive, was in many respects the most significant 
convention held during the past four years. 
It Avas the greatest gathering of students, the 
total number being 3,984, representing over 
800 institutions in Canada and the United 
States. 200 of these delegates were Chinese 
and Japanese students studying in the univer- 
sities of America. To this number of students 
we must add more than 1200 laymen, profes- 
sors, and missionaries. Many students were 
held at home on account of the number of 
delegates being limited; this limitation neces- 
sarily made it possible only. for the most rep- 
resentative students to attend. The Baltimore 
institutions were represented by 18 delegates. 



This University was represented by J. E. 
Evans, President of Y. M. C. A.; C. Smith 
Peeles ; and A. E. Lindley, Undergraduate Sec- 
retary, Y. M. C. A. 

No one who attended can ever get away 
from the impressions received, and many were 
called to face the truths in a new light. Many 
heard God's call to the open and needy fields 
through such men as J. R. Mott, who was the 
Chairman of the Convention, Robert E. Speer, 
G. Sherwood Eddy, A. C. Hart, S. M. Zwaner, 
Robert F. Plorton and Secretary of State 
Bryan, and were true to this call. Over 200 
offered themselves to the churchboards during 
the convention, and since then many have vol- 
unteered their services. Among these are the 
strongest men and women in America. Since 
the Rochester convention, held four years ago, 
1466 college men and women have sailed. It 
is a significant fact that last year 40,400 stu- 
dents were enrolled in Mission Study classes, 
an increase of more than 40% over the pre- 
ceding year, and with the power of this con- 
vention, this number during the coming year 
should be greatly augmented. No student can 
count himself educated who does not know 
the conditions existing on the Foreign Field. 

The spirit of prayer prevailed everywhere, 
and everyone was conscious of the power of 
prayer. On the trains going and returning, 
the delegates heard meetings many times daily 
in intercessory prayer. Everyone was urged 
to keep the morning watch, and' no one present 
can ever doubt the power of intercessory 
prayer. These students from our American 
colleges and universities, if true to the vision 
received, have returned to their institutions 
and churches to infuse the spirit of the con- 
vention, and win their fellow student to Jesus 

That college or uiiiversity which does not 
encourage the study of missions and of the 
Bible cannot count itself among the progres- 
sive institutions of America. 

The recent visit of Dr. W. D. Weatherford, 
International Student Secretary of the Young 
Men's Christian Association for the South, was 
very helpful. Dr. "Weatherford has been trav- 
eling among the college and university men in 
America for the past thirteen years, giving his 
entire time to this work. No man in America 
knows the college man's battles better than 

Dr. Weatherford. During this busy life of 
his he has also found time to write four books, 
which have a wide circulation, especially 
among college and university men. Dr. 
Weatherford spoke in the following institu- 
tions while in Baltimore : Goucher College, 
Johns Hopkins University, Johns Hopkins 
Medical School, Baltimore College of Dental 
Surgery, College of Physicians and Surgeons, 
University of Maryland. 

There has been a movement for sometime 
at the university to have an assembly at least 
once a month, where strong addresses might 
be given before the student body of the uni- 
versity, and where college interests might be 
presented. The first of these meetings was 
held in the Chemical Hall on January 15th, 
and the address was given by Dr. Weather- 
foi'd, who plead for a stronger character 
among college and university men. The hall 
was packed with students who heard this mes- 
sage with open hearts, and those who heard 
it will testify as to the strength of this appeal. 
We believe that this is a step toward a higher 
standard in the university. , 

On the evening of January 14th, a group of 
twenty-two university men met at the Central 
Y. M. C. A. for dinner with Dr. Weatherford. 
Following the dinner, Dr. Weatherford spoke 
on the college man's responsibility. Following 
this, there was a conference on what the stu- 
dents can do to help the university. 


Fellows, it is largely through our adver-

What is about to be said touches upon a deli- 
cate subject. And yet it has full warrant for 
the saying. It has to do with a condition which 
can and should be altered. I refer to that care- 
lessness in some and to the absence of knowing 
in others, which is evidenced by the incorrect 
use of some of the common words used in every 
day speech. Why a full grown man should 
tell you that, "As he come up the street today, 
he seen a boy blow a been at 'some chicken,' 
and be knows who done it." Ye Gods! Come 
for came. Done for did. Seen for saw. Help ! 
I perish! Pardon the chicken! No one could 
rationally object to chicken. But for the love 
of Mike, cut out done and come and seen al- 
together if in doubt. Let the free-born Ameri- 
can chew tobacco, pick his teeth if necessary 
and say damn when the preacher is not listen- 
ing, but by all that is decent let him master 
the evil habit which marks him as "illiterate." 
This means you, Mr. Careless ! 

P. S. — The temptation is so great, we just 
can't resist it. Pardon us. 

If the writer of the above remarks had in- 
cluded a paragraph on poor spelling and in- 
correct punctuation, we should have considered 
his remarks complete. Prythee, why so modest, 
Iloratius ? 

When a duck lays an egg she waddles off 
and says nothin'. When a hen lays an egg 
there 's a hell of a noise. The hen advertises ! 
Hence the demand for hens' eggs. 

Apropos of a plea for ventilation in Anatomi- 
cal Hall as suggested in our last issue, two of 
the semi-circular windows were recently found 
nailed shut to make sure that no cubic centi- 
meter of the heat supplied by our very capable 
janitor should escape. Some enlightened in- 
dividual, a profound believer in the value of 
God's fresh air had proceeded to ventilate the 
room by a well directed use of his right boot 
toe. It is to be hoped that, in behalf of good 
health of the student body, the resultant breach 
will not be repaired for many months to come.

deans of the various departments that it is the 
proper medium of giving publicity to official

The Certification of Pharmacists. 

Dear Doctor : — 

Certain New York physicians and pharmacists have 
appointed a joint committee which is to thoroughly 
investigate New York pharmacies and certify to the 
worth of those that meet reasonable modern require- 
ments in stock, in equipment and in practice. 

We believe our greatly enlarged facilities and up-to- 
date equipment would amply entitle us to such certifi- 
cation. The character of work we have been doing 
for more than twenty years has, we hope, thoroughly 
and firmly established us in your esteem and favor- 
ably testifies as to our abilities and methods.

Although the Legislature of the fcJtate ol 
Maryland of 1784 enacted a charter providing 
fox the union of Washington College, at Ches- 
tertown, and St. John's College, at Annapolis, 
as the University of Marjdand, the governing 
bodies of the two institutions were unable, after 
several conferences, to effect its consummation. 
Some historians are accustomed to speak of this 
proposed universitj- as the first University of 
Maryland, but as the privileges granted were 
never made use of, it is certainly an error to 
speak of this institution iu contemplation as an 
institution in actuality. The State was there- 
fore aompeUed to wait until 1812 for the actual 
organization of an institution bearing her name. 
This was accomplished by the Legislative grant 
of a charter to the College of Medicine of 
Maryland, fo^^nded in. 1807, giving it the privi- 
lege of associating with it the Faculties of Di- 
vinity, Arts and Sciences, and Law, under the 
name of the University of Maryland. The Fac- 
ulty af Divinity was never in actual operation. 
The Academic Department Avas acquired in 
1830 by merger with Baltimore College, 
founded in 1803. This School was in active 
existence until 1872, when lectures ceased, as 
a consequence of which the Board of Regents 
ordered it closed. From that period until 1907 
the University of Maryland was without a 
Department of Arts and Sciences. In this year, 
however, this necessary unit of universitj^ or- 
ganization was supplied by affiliation with St. 
John's College, of Annapolis, Md., a most ven- 
erable institution, Avith a long and honorable 
career. Starting iu 1696 as King Williaoi's 
School, and succeeding it in 1784 as St. John's 
College, this school was expected to form a 
nufileus of the then projected University of 
Maryland. It, therefore, seemed especially fit- 
ting to those concerned when seeking a colle- 

giate department to offer the above-named in- 
stitution the privilege of forming a component 
part of the University of Maryland. Thus 1907 
saw St. Johns College, under the presidency of 
Dr. Thomas Fell, fulfilling the dream of the 
Geiieral Assembly of 1784 that it be a part of 
the Universitj' of Marjdand. 

The Faculty of Law was annexed to the Fac- 
ulty of Physic on January 6, 1S13, but a course 
of instruction was not inaugurated until 1823, 
only to be suspended in 1836. No attempt was 
made to resume lectures in this school until 
1869, when the course was revived upon the 
initiative of Professor Christopher Johnston, of 
the Faculty of Physic, since which time the 
Law School has enjoyed an uninterrupted and 
successful career. 

Thus at the present date the University of 
Maryland consists of three schools of facul- 
ties, — Medicine, Law and Arts and Sciences, 
besides the Departments of Dentistry and 
Pharmacy, which, though in reality indepen- 
dent, are in name subdivisions of the Faculty of 
Physic. The Faculty of Physic had in 1839 the 
opportimity of annexing unto itself a Depart- 
ment of Dentistry when Doctors Horace H. 
Haj'den and Chapin A. Harris made a formal 
proposal for the institution of such a depart- 
ment; but at that time the subject of dentistry 
was thought so unimportant that the proposi- 
tion was unfortunately rejected. Thus the Uni- 
versity of Marjdand lost the opportunity of 
founding the first dental school in the world. 
However, some consolation, though slight, may 
be derived from the fact that Dr. Hayden, upon 
the invitation of the Faculty of Physic, deliv- 
ered during the session of 1837-1838 the first 
systematic course of dental lectures in America, 
and, perhaps, in the world, to the medical stu- 
dents of the University of Marj-land. In 1882 
the Faculty of Physic came to the realization 
that the subject of dentistrj' had advanced to 
sufficient importance to demand a course of in- 
struction, applied to the Legislature of the 



State of Maryland for a charter to add unto 
itself a Department of Dentistry. The Legisla- 
ture granted this petition, and on April 28. 
1882, the first summer practical session began, 
and on October 2, 1882, the first winter session. 
Since that time the Department of Dentistry i 
has been in continuous and active operation, 
and at present is one of the foremost schools of 
dentistry of the United States. 

The Department of Pharmacy was acquired 
by union with the Maryland College of Phar- 
macy, founded in 1841, upon the suggestion of 
Doctor William R. Fisher, Professor of Chem- 
istry in the University of Maryland, but who 
died in 1842 without participation in its exe- 
cution. Thus, again, when the University of 
Maryland acquired the Maryland School of 
Pharmacy it could only be looked upon as com- 
ing into its own. For this school was organized 
largely upon the initiative of a member of the 
Faculty of Physic of the University of Mary- 

As all of the important changes in the career 
of the University have emanated in the Faculty 
of Physic, which, together with all of the other 
professional schools, is located in Baltimore, it 
is perhaps fitting that it serve as a climax to 
this history. The Medical School was founded 
in 1807, as the College of Medicine in Mary- 
land, and owes its foundation to Dr. John 
Beale Davidge. As early as 1802, Dr. Davidge 
gave courses of lectures on Anatomy, Surgery, 
etc., which Avere continued annually until 
merged into the course of the College. Con- 
sequently, though unchartered, the Medical 
Department is prone to look upon its inception 
as 1802 instead of 1807. Even taking the last 
as its natal day, the medical school ranks as 
the fifth medical school in point of age and 
origin in the United States. In 1807 Dr. 
Davidge, together with other prominent physi- 
cians of Baltimore, applied to the Legislature 
of Maryland for a charter, which was granted 
December 18, 1807, under the above-named 
title, and to be governed by a Board of Re- 
gents, consisting of the president and profes- 
sors of the College of Medicine of Maryland 
and the Board of Medical Examiners for Mary- 
land. A charter having thus been secured, a 
meeting of organization was held at Dr. Dav- 
idge 's, December 28, 1807, at 12 M. Thus, at 
this time was the future University of Mary- 
land born, and during the first week of Janu- 

ary lectures commenced with seven students in 
attendance. The lectures were held here and 
there until 1812, when the necessity of a suit- 
able building becoming exceedingly urgent, and 
there being not sirffieient funds in hand or avail- 
able for the purpose, it was necessary to resort 
to lottery. Grounds were purchased at the 
corner of Lombard and Greene streets, Balti- 
more, and the old building, modelled after the 
Pantheon at Rome, was built. This structure 
still -stands, and with this coming commence- 
ment, will have seen one hundred and three 
classes leave its portals. 

As far as can be ascertained, it was about 
this time that the idea of evolving a university 
with the Medical School as a nucleus arose. 
The President and Professors of the College, 
with the approval and advice of the Board of 
Regents, presented a memorial to the Legisla- 
ture, praying the passage of an act to found 
a University bearing the name of the State, 
which act was passed December 29, 1812. This 
act gave to the College of Medicine of Mary- 
land the authority to annex unto itself the other 
three colleges or faculties, viz. : Divinity, Law 
and Arts and Sciences. These four schools 
were to constitute the University of Maryland, 
and were to be governed by a Board of Re- 
gents, consisting of the members of the Fac- 
ulties and a Provost. 

For one hundred and seven years the Univer- 
sity of Maryland has never closed its doors. 
Even during the dark days of the Civil "War, 
when many institjitions of learning were forced 
to close, instruction was continued, though the 
classes were small. Throughout the century of 
its existence the Medical Department has al- 
ways taken rank as one of the leading medical 
colleges of the South, and among the most 
Avidely known and most highly honored of the 
Schools of Medicine of the country. It was the 
first medical school in America to make dis- 
secting a compulsory part of its curriculum, 
and the first to provide for adequate clinical 
instruction by the erection of its own hospital 
(1823), available at all times for the use of its 
students. In 1890 the University established 
the University Hospital Training School for 
Nurses, which has today about 90 pupils in 

The plan of government of the University 
of Maryland seems not in keeping with the 
present idea of centralization, but it must be 



remembered that the University was founded 
by men who inherited the Colonial spirit, and 
who were fearful lest the concentration of 
power might mean tyranny and oppression for 
the individual unit — consequently the charter 
tended towards the independence of the sepa- 
rate departments rather than the creation of a 
strong central university government. 

The University of Maryland stands unique 
amongst the universities of America in having 
been evolved from a medical school ; and boasts 
not only a long and honorable past, but is today 
the largest institution of learning in Mary- 
land, having about fifteen hundred students in 

In 1913, the Baltimore Medical College, with 
its three departments, medical, legal and den- 
tal, was merged with the classes of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, thereby not only increas- 
ing the student body, but also adding a number 
of promineut men to the teaching force. We 
are entering a new era, and a spirit of optimism 
permeates the institution.

The following story can be vouched for as 
having been witnessed by a personal friend of 
the writer while sojourning not five years ago 
in South China. 

In a certairi inland city of fifty thousand, in 
Fukien Province, a white man was domiciled 
with his family. During the course of his stay, 
a number of garments were one morning found 
missing from the family washline. Notice Avas 
immediately sent to the Yamen or local magis- 
trate's office for the apprehension and punish- 
ment of the thief. No developments arose for 
a week or more, when a thief was caught one 
noon by a gate-keeper, in the white man's gar- 
den, with a fresh lot of clothes in his posses- 
sion. He was straightway tied up by his cue 
to a tree to await the coming of the Yamen 
rnmiers who delivered him into the hands of 
the Maguai to be locked up and await trial. 

Now, tlie Magnai is the professional thief- 
catcher in his official capacity, but if the truth 
were knoAvn, this is but a nom de plume to hide 

his real identity. He is in reality the Prince of 
thieves, decides which persons are to be robbed, 
and appoints subordinates to do the job. The 
only crime is in being caught, and this is not a 
very dangerous proceeding in China, where the 
thieves" do not carry pistols and black-jacks. 
But this particular thief made a blunder in tres- 
passing on the White Man's compound, for the 
White Man will not brook any interference with 
his personal comfort and safety in the Yellow 
Man's country. Complaint is quickly made to 
the Yamen, and if the Yamen does not correct 
matters within a reasonable time, the complaint 
goes further, to the White Man's Consul, Avho 
sees to it that the matter is promptly settled to 
the White IiFan's satisfaction. If not, the Ya- 
men official loses his head or his reputation, 
either of which is not very comfortable. But 
the next Yamen official attends more' closely to 
the White Man's comfort and safety. 

The White Man knew all this, and demanded 
of the Yamen a restitution of the stolen goods 
or their* value and the punishment of the thief. 
The wheels of jiistice gi'ind very slowly in 
China. The reason is to grind out more money 
from the pockets of the plaintiffs, and, if possi- 
ble, drain them and so win the case for the 
defendant who, in the meantime, has possibly 
paid in still more cash. However, the White 
Man's pocketbook did not yield returns for the 
Yamen in this manner, for he could get justice 
in another way and more quickly. 

Finally, in desperation, the Magnai appeared 
before the White Man. "Sir!" he exclaimed, 
"the thief is starving in the gaol for lack of 
nourishment. Out of mercy I have supplied 
him with food from my own purse. I can do 
so no longer for my income is very meager. 
You know it is the custom for the complainant 
to pay for the prisoner's board and keep while 
in prison aAvaiting trial," which was quite true. 
"Begone!" said the White Man, "bring me my 
clothing or their value, and punish the offender, 
or someone will lose his head." 

So the Magnai left, but returned the next 
day. "You are extremely hard on me," said 
he. "The clothing cannot be found, and the 
value you place upon it is without reason. The 
thief is hungry and my purse is dwindling. I 
beg of you to accept less." Now the White 
Man had purposely doubled the value of the 



stolen goods to be assured of getting the fair 
value in the end, so he said: "See here, if you 
return to me ten dollars on next Saturday 
morning, at ten, o'clock, all shall be well. If 
not, someone shall lose his head," 

On Saturday morning, promptly at ten, the 
money was forthcoming; and at the Yamen a 
servant of the White Man was witness of the 
fact that the thief received thirty lashes well- 
laid on. So it was reported. At any rate, from 
henceforth, no more clothing Avas missing, and 
the, White Man was satisfied. 

It will be readily seen that there is an open- 
ing in South China for any member of the Law 
Department who wishes to help build up a fine 
practice, legislate new measures for reform, or 
rapidly attain the bench. Biit we hope thai; 
under the new Republic such stories as above 
will soon be mere relics of the past. 


By F. J. Valentine, D.D.S. 

Some years ago Dr. Eliot, of Harvard Univer- 
sity, in an address before the Harvard Summer 
School, offered a description of what would be 
a religion of the futiire, and again in the New 
York Times of January 11 he discusses a twen- 
tieth century Christianity. 

We wish for the sake of those who would 
really try to seek knowledge — along religious 
lines,-^that Dr. Eliot, when he^ launched his 
ideas of modern religion, would have at- 
tempted a more logical detail of this new re- 
ligion, instead of a speculation as to wTiat re- 
ligion will be in the future based on modern 
science and trend of thought. 

Naturally we would inquire as to what is his 
definition of religion — whether it is a classified 
knowledge of various theories of ancient and 
modern divines, a collection of siiperstitioi^s 
practices and beliefs of all nations, and a com- 
parison of their philosophies and morals — or 
does he believe in the revelation of the knowl- 
edge of God and His attributes given to man 
supernaturally as is taught by every potentially 
religioiTs body or sect in the world today? 

Does the Doctor believe in religion at all or 
accept its meaning and ideas as taught by the 

church today? If he does, what, may we ask, 
is the nature, meaning, and consequence of this 
modern one? 

With one stroke of the pen — as it were — Dr. 
Eliot has abolished all knowledge, systems, and 
forms of religion — establishing in its place a 
vast nebulous, colorless and lifeless sort of an 
idea that he calls a religion based on what Ave 
might know — if we Avere only sure we kneAv 
it — and attributes this remarkable change to 
modern science and democracy. 

We feel sorry for a religion dependable on 
either science or democracy — for the scientific 
truths of today may be error tomorrow, and 
democracy of his sort is only in the try-out 
stage, thoTigh true democracy takes its rise 
directly from Christianity, which is a very con- 
cise form of religion. 

Dr. Eliot may try to impress on us that 
ridiculous old assertion about the warfare be- 
tween science and religion, but to those Avith a 
discerning mi];id, and who understand the na- 
ture of both science and religion, they can 
imderstand there is no Avarfare, for Avhat is 
truth in both eases cannot be contradictory. 
On the contrary, the truths of science rather 
atfirm (though in a hazy, indistinct manner) 
the truths of religion. There is no contradic- 
tion betAveen Genesis and geology. If there 
AA-ere. Genesis has more weight and is of more 
service to man than all geologies. We are 
afraid Dr. Eliot in his effort to change the old 
religion based Ms ideas on the possibility that 
some day science will completely overthrow all 
the truths of religion ; but Atntil that day ar- 
rives we cannot be guided by what he says, for 
a possibility contingent on a possibility would 
lead to nowhere — or, even worse, lead to rank 

Let us not be affrighted by a pompous pes- 
simism, or believe that because several inter- 
esting, excellent and absorbing discoveries havp 
been attained within the last century that all 
that went before it is error, or that the truths 
of today will change yesterday's truths. 

After all. what is science biit the intellect of 
man trying to grasn and eoranrehend God's 
laAvs? And. thoueh our knoAvledee might go 
on forever. hoAv could a finite mind grasn and 
understand the will of the Infinite, thoua-h very 
suDerficially and only by direct permission? 

We live in an affe where reason holds sway; 
but if T may be allowed to quote from a dis- 



course delivered in Westminster Church bj^ 
Professor, Hemmeter, who said, in part, that: 
''Nicodemus could not understand the teach- 
ings and miracles of the Saviour because he 
based everything on natural laws. * * * 
The human senses are fallacious giiides. There 
are things on earth which are so delicate that 
we cannot detect them with our eyes, tones so 
fine that we cannot hear them. 

"A developed man understands that there is 
something inaudible, intangible, invisible and 
infinite that operates upon him. 

"This new religion, based on natural laws, 
is all wrong, as we have not universal knowl- 
edge on which to build. Reduced to their final 
analysis, we reach forces that we cannot ex- 
plain. ' ' 

That religion must not be classified with the 
sum of human knowledge — for she is a divine 
knowledge — would l)e a difficult i^oint to refute. 
There might be, and undoubtedly is, an anal- 
ogy between religion as a science and other hu- 
man sciences, but to believe that she is depend- 
able on human knowledge is error. 

The physiologist carries our knowledge high 
into the domain of biologj'. Eventually we go 
from the natural sciences to the metaphysical, 
until from the valleys unto the foothills we 
ascend the Mount of Knowledge. But neither 
eentitude based on experiment, or reason based 
on analogy, can ever explore the eternal snows 
at the summit, for faith and faith alone bi-iugs 
us there. 

Religion descends from those everlasting 
snows like the glaciers, and no one can create a 
river to flow up and up and penetrate those icy 

But this is the important point. We suppose 
Dr. Eliot surely means natural religion when 
he speaks of it at all — and we must concede 
the point that knowledge surely has changed 
man, for we no longer adore the gods of Rome. 
Venus or Mars today is an absurdity ; even the 
leathered gods of Oceauica and the wooden 
gods of Africa will some day give Avay in those 
places. And so natural religion changes. But, 
to the contrary, the religion of Abraham, the 
Prophets, Apostles and Doctors of the middle 
ages is still the same, for ti-uth cannot be like 

God has revealed Himself to man for man's 

good, and this is divine knowledge on religion. 

It is perfectly reasonable to believe under 

the circumstances that the love of a Creator 
for His creature could, undoubtedly did and 
will allow the finite mind to grasp a knowledge 
of Him which is of benefit to man and help 
him become more than a high-class animal, n 
creature endowed with virtue, free will and 

Therefore, we hope that such a discussion 
coming from so prominent a man as Dr. Eliot, 
will some time be given us in a more pro- 
nounced form. For example, let him give a 
voluminous treatise on the correct history and 
complete analysis of the nature, origin and 
functions of religion, along with a description 
of the disadvantages of the old and the ad- 
vantagc!i of the ncAv. After Dr. Eliot has com- 
piled this treatise we may examine his logic 
and draA\" our own conclusions. 

Francis Bacon says a little philosophy in- 
clineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in 
philosophy bringeth man's mind about to re- 
ligion ; or, as Edmund Burke said, that Avriters 
against religion, whilst they oppose every sys- 
tem, they are wisely careful not to set up any 
of their own ; and to quote Carlysle, who said : 

"His religion is at best but an anxious wish — 
like that of Rabalais — a great Perhaps."

Nvlneli were real Avorries then, become pleasant 
memories later. Friendships which were under- 
valued then grow into cherished memories 
which could not be bought for any price, a 
feAv years later. It's the friendships shaped 
while at college which live. New friendships 
are formed later in life to be sure, but it is 
seldom that these have the true ring. No mat- 
ter how trusting a man may be, he can't help 
but be on the lookout for those pseudo or false 
friendships which may by chance, be based 
more on what material things may be had as a 
result, than upon the pure joy of "being 
friends." This is bound to be so. It is part 
of the life all must lead ; to be on guard, unless 
one is sure that the friendship is friendship 
pure and simple and not business plus friend- 
ship. Perhaps there is no surer index thau un- 
selfishness. Be cautious regarding the "friend" 
who tells you how well you look and later 
asks a favor. 

Once, while attending a local football game, 
T heard an excited student yell, at a critical 
moment, to his pal who was on the team : "Make 
a touchdown. Bill ! Make a touchdown ! GET 
smile, boys. 

This ardent enthusiast wanted to see his 
friend "make good." It meant much to him 
and demonstrated his true regard. How seldom 
in later life will we find friends who will want 
to really see us "make touchdowns." Most 
often it is the apathy of our older friends which 
dampens our ambitions. Make friends while 
at college. These friendships live. 

MARCH 1, 1914. 


"To live without friends is to be lonely. 
No other interests will fill the void." A man 
is living through the happiest period of his life 
while at college. Few men know how true 
this is until in after years, while the stern bat- 
tle of life is booming around at a great rate, a 
period comes when, almost without being aware 
of it, the thoughts turn backward. The four 
years spent in the lab. and in the lecture rooms 
appear in an absolutely new light. "Worries 


One of the greatest needs of the University 
of Marjdand at the present time is a dormitory. 
It would be a great benefit to the University 
as well as to the students. 

There is a dei^lorable lack of college spirit, 
although our student body is rapidly growing 
every year. We should have a great amount 
of spirit. As an educational institution it 
ranks with the best colleges in the United 
States. As an historical institution, it is sur- 
passed by few, having been founded in 1807. 
Manjr of the greatest men of today are grad- 
uates of the University of Maryland. 



liowever, these facts aloue do not stir up 
college spirit. It is necessary for the fellows 
to be in closer contact with each other. We 
are scattered all over the city, two or three 
students at a boarding house. We do not 
come in contact with our classmates, except at 
our lectures. That explains the lack of spirit. 

Every college which is noted for its s]3irit 
has at least one dormitory. There the fellows 
are in constant touch with each other. This 
brings about better school work, and good- 
fellowship. The men take more pride in their 
school. A dormitory provides them with a 
nice, clean place in which to live. 

It is not necessary that all out-of-town stu- 
dents be accommodated in dormitories, but we 
should have a dormitory to accommodate a 
reasonable number of the students. 

As far back as 1907 the University of Mary- 
laud had plans for the erection of a dormitory 
on the corner of Lombard and Greene streets, 
but for some reason, the plans were abandoned. 
A dormitory is needed much more now that it 
was in 1907. It is not necessary that a new 
building be erected. There are many build- 
ings that could easily be converted into dormi- 

This is a problem that should be considered 
b}^ the Facultj'. It is one of their greatest 
needs, and it is right in line with the present 
expansion of the University of Maryland. The 
students want it. The Universitj', as a grow- 
ing institution, should have it. 


Meanwhile Dr. Pell, what about the sug- 
gestion of a commercial dei^artment. This is 
too good an idea to let rusticate. Both the 
University and the affiliated school would 
]u-ofit l).y such an alliance. 

Along the same line "Old Maryland" would 
suggest to the Board of Regents the appropri- 
ateness of acquiring the Maryland Institute as 
a department of fine arts. A department of 
this character would materially enhance both 
the standing of the Marj-land Institute and 
the University of ilaryland. The former in- 
stitution is now oul.y local in color but by 
alliance with the university would immediately 

assume a national character, indeed interna- 
tional. The medical school alone gets out 
more than 40,000 catalogues annually, in which 
the Marj'laud Institute would be incorporated 
as an integral part of the Universitj'. One 
cannot picture what this advertisement would 
mean to the Maryland Institute. "Old Mary- 
land" confidently believes some arrangement 
of affiliation with this institution could be ar- 
ranged, if the proposition was broached in the 
proper spirit to the directors of the Maryland 
Institute. "The sun do move." so must we, 
if we are going to fulfill our obligations to the 
city. State and nation, but we must get a hump 
on ourselves and beat the other fellow to it. 
Nothing comes to him who sits still and waits 
these days. The old adage may have been cor- 
rect in bygone times, but not now. He who 
wishes to accomplish something must be up and 
. doing. This applies to institutions as well as 
individuals. The University of Maryland must 
be ever on the alert to spread and broaden its 
influence. It must not be downcast if it does 
not succeed in the purpose of the pursuit it set 
out to accomplish, but keep on trying, trying. 
Persistency will prevail. This is a progressive 
suggestion — yea, more than that, feasible, prac- 
tical. The Alumni of the University would 
welcome the addition. There is not an iota of a 
reason why, with the modification of the 
courses, a degree of B. S. should not be 

Gentlemen of the Board of Regents and Dr. 
Fell, here is food for thought. Devise Avays and 
means to bring this happy event about. Yours 
the will; there's a way. 

Mr. B. C. Lightner, of the Intermediate Law 
Class, offers the suggestion that the building on 
Howard street formerly occupied by the Balti- 
more Medical College as a laboratory is well 
adapted to conversion to a students' dormitory. 
Coming to think of the matter, the writer is 
more than favorably impressed with the idea. 
For a long time — yea, these many years — the 
University authorities have been bewailing the 
lack of dormitories. Here, for the outgo of 
a small amount, the University has a dormitory 
ready for use. The building is admirably situ- 
ated and only a good walk from the University. 
It is our impression the building imder discus- 
sion is still the property of the Baltimore Med- 
ical College corporation. If so, it can be made 
productive to these gentlemen, and not, al at

Memorial Tablet ta Dr. Cordell. 

Don't be backward in sending in your sub- 
scription. Above all, don't feel slighted if you 
are not personally solicited, as those in charge 
of the fund believe the work of Doctor Cordell 
in behalf of the University of Maryland sufS- 
ciently meritorious to render a man to man 
appeal unnecessary. Surely enough interest 
should be taken in this movement to forever 
perpetuate the memory of a man who devoted 
a large part of his time to the upbuilding of the 
LTniversity. The committee thanks those who 
have already subscribed, and earnestly solicits 
further contributions so as to make the memor- 
ial worthy of the man to whose memory it is to 
be erected. 

The following have subscribed:

A college paper cannot be successfully pub- 
lished by the revenue obtained from subscrip- 
tions alone. It is necessary to secure advertise- 
ments. "Old Maryland" is no exception to the 
rule. No firm is willing to advertise unless it 
can see some results flowing from the advertise- 
ment. Invariably the fii'st question a prospec- 
.tive advertiser put to us is, "How can you show 
us results?" We have solved this problem by 
having slips printed, which read as follows : 
' ' This sale was procured through an advertise- 
ment in 'Old Maryland,' University of Mary- 
land, Baltimore, Md." 

During the present month we will distribute 
a pad of these slips to each student in the Uni- 

It is not necessary that the student carry the 
entire pad with him. He can tear off a page or 
two and put them in his pocket. When he 
makes a purchase from one of our advertisers, 
by turning in one of these slips the advertiser 
can see that he is getting results fi-om the ad- 

Patronize our advertisers. They are the best 
in the city. Cut out the firms who will not help 
us. The students run "Old Maryland," and 
therefore we should patronize only those firms 
which place an advertisement with us. 


I will not wish you happiness this glorious New Year; 

For yours the will, 

And yours the skill 

To mould your cup of cheer. 

1 will not wish you happiness for yours the heart 

and brain 
The way to clear 
That leads to cheer 
And dries the Old Year's tear. 
1 will not wish contentment for you in these New 

Year days, 
Nor pleasures, health. 
Nor worlds of wealth, 
Nor meeds of public praise. 
I will not wish vou strength or gain, or any earthly 

That only pays 
You with its lays 
And paeans full of praise. 
I will not wish that fear nor fret shall not beside 

you lurk; 
I shall not ask 
That you may bask 
In scenes that never irk. 
But I will wish you work, and work, and loads and 

loads of work. 
For it will bring 
You everything I 
If you can work and sing. 

— H. H. Robinson, '09, Med. 




Since 1912 the University of Maryland has 
not been represented in athletics. The reason 
for the diseontuiuanee of athletics was on 
account of the inability of the men of the 
different departments to report for practice at 
the same time, due to the fact that the Univer- 
sity is composed of professional schools, and 
the hours in the different departments conflict. 
On this account, the Faculty deemed it ex- 
pedient to discontinue athletics with other 
colleges rather than be represented by a second- 
class team. 

But why should this fact abolish athletics 
altogether? Whj- not let each department 
organize a baseball team and play for the 
championship of the University. 

The Law School has alreadj^ taken steps to 
organize a team, and stands ready to meet 
representatives from the other departments 
to arrange a series of games for the Intei--De- 
partment Championship of the Universitj'.

' ' Dear Dr. Winslow : 

"Please find enclosed my check for the me- 
morial tablet to be placed in Davidge Hall to 
the memory of Dr. Eugene F. Cordell. What a 
remarkable man he was, what a loyal son he was 
of the University of Maryland. Do you not think 
tiiere should be a more permanent tribute to 
liis memory than a memorial tablet? What do 
>ou think of raising $10,000, which would give 
an annual income of say $450 or $500, and 
au'ardiug a 'Cordell Scholarshii) ' every four 
years in the School of Medicine to a worthy, 
deserving and competent young man, who is 
lieginning the study of medicine at the Uni- 
\ersity of Maryland? This annual income of 
$450 or $500 would paj' his tuition fees, pur- 
chase his books, and pay his board each year.

Bat, drink and be — careful. 

Medical — Sophomore. 

At last we have reached the second rung 
of the ladder, Sophomore; let us now aspire to 
the third. 

Second only to the adoption of the honor 
system a few years ago, is the action of the 
Sophomore class in voting unanimously against 
the old and barbaric practise of hazing. This 
action not alone aids in placing our University 
in the forefront of the great anti-hazing move- 
ment, but also is a strong link in the long chain 
of fraternal spirit which is sweeping over our 
University. Our idea in eliminating hazing was 
for a two-fold purpose. Primarily we wished 
to bring about a feeling of friendship between 
the united Sophomore classes of the B. M. C. 
and U. of M., and secondly, we were demon- 
strating to our Freshmen a more logical and 
more sensible manner in which to welcome in- 
coming freshmen to our school. 

Our sole desire is, that the class of 1917, rea- 
lizing what we did for them, will reciprocate 

by doing the same for men of the coming class 
of 1918. 

FellowSj get in line and keep the ball rolling. 
To hesitate means to falter; to falter would 
mean failure, and failure would mean lack of 
university spirit; so again I repeat, get in line, 
put your shoulder to the ball and keep it 
rolling for the good of ourselves and our school. 

It is with extreme regret that we note the 
divided conditions of the classes of the law and 
other departments. If other medical classes 
and other departments could have profited by 
our arrangement we feel sure that a perfectly 
amicable settlement could have been reached. 

In the early part of May, 1913, the Fresh- 
man Class, then about to enter upon the final 
examinations, decided that some previous ar- 
rangement should be made concerning the 
union of the Freshman Class of the B. M. C. and 
that of the U. of M. After many discussions 
pro and con it was decided since the U. of M. 
Freshmen outnumbered those of the B. M. C, 
to equally divide among the two classes the 
officers of the Sophomore year. This proposi- 
tion was placed before the B. M. C. men and 
met with their approval. The individual classes 
then held their elections and elected the fol- 
lowing officers for the ensuing year: President, 
Cecil Rigby; Vice-President, PhiliiD D. Davis; 
Secretary, Chas. R. Brooke; Treasurer, Clarke 
S. Long; Historian, John E. Evans; Sergeant- 
at-Arms, Fred. S. Eyestone. 

Early in the month of October, President 
Rigby called a class meeting to hold the annual 
election of the honor committee. 

After a thorough explanation of the purpose 
and rules of the honor system by ex-Chair- 
man Voss, the election was held and the fol- 
lowing men were elected: Chairman, Thos. B. 
BroAvn ; John E. Evans, Bernard Ferry, Samuel 
Pruitt and Harrison Wellraan. 

Medical — Freshmen. 

We extend our deepest sympathy to Mr. 
0. B. Bonner, who was called to his home at 
Carey, N. C, February 2nd, on account of the 
death of his sister Miss Fannie H. Bonner. 
Miss Bonner, who was twenty years of age, 
was ill for a period of only ten days. 



The editor noted in a recent edition of Old 
Maryland, that the Junior editor in speaking 
of the disorder in lecture room, made this re- 
mark, "such conduct would discredit a Fresh- 
men class." Now the same kind of conduct 
as that of which he was speaking, occurs in 
some of our lecture rooms almost every day. 
I will leave it to the members of the class to 
say whether it does or does not discredit our 
class. Let us look at it from a mercenary 
standpoint. We are paying our tuition for 
the i^rivilege of having the various professors 
lecture to us. Why then Avill we create 
such a disturbance during the lectures, that 
we are unable to get the very thing for which 
we are paying our money? 

It is the belief of the writer, that at least a 
majoritj^ of the men in our class wish to get 
the most they can out of the lectures. Is it 
right for a few to keep them from paying 

What is the remedy? Whose business is it 
to see that order is kept? Is it the duty of 
the President of the class to get up and lecture 
to the class on the way to behave, every time 
such misconduct occurs? The writer cannot 
see it that way. 

Every one of us is old enough to know what 
we came here for. Now then let's "cut out 
this rough-house" and each man make up his 
mind that such behavior is for "Prep" school 
boys, riot for members of the Freshman class 
of the University of Maryland. 

Thank goodness, no more Biology. 

Mr. Fasenbaker's latest theory in regard to 
the thinness of periosteum, in the long bones 
of the aged, is that when the young bone in- 
creases in size, the periosteum is stretched. 

Dr. Queen : ' ' Mr. Laham, where is the ster- 
num ? ' ' 

Mr. Leham (our representative from Egj'pt, 
feeling in the region of his sacrum). "I think 
that the stern is here." 

It is noticed that Jack Frost never takes a 
nap in lecture room as he was once accustomed 
to do. He seems a little bashful about telling the 
reason, so if you wish to find out the reason 
for his change, yon had better ask Dojde.

lu the past the Law School has never had 
a baseball team, and since the discontinuance 
of athletics last year, the University has not 
been represented on the diamond, except by 
the St. John's College team. 

There has been considerable talk of organ- 
izing a Law School team. We have an abun- 
dance of material. In the Law School are 
many men who have played on some of the 
fastest college and prep, school teams in this 
part of the country. There is no reason why 
we could not have a first-class team. Let us 
get together and demonstrate that our high 
batting average is not confined to law. It is 
necessary that we get together on this proposi- 
tion at once in order to secure games with 
other school teams.

Law— Senior. 

Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Judge 
Gorter. He had carefully and generously 
marked over two huudi'cd books on the old 
style basis of forty as a maximmn. Then the 
office had the neiwe to tell him he'd have to 
change them all to the basis of a hundred. As 
a consequence the marks came out five days 
late. We might suggest an additional office 
force to relieve at least one member of our 
Bench from arduous clerical labor. 

The jinx has surely gotten into Powell's type- 
writer or else Ben has been taking something 



a trifle too strong for his constitution. Did 
you notice the way Judge Gorter's exam, 
marks were written up? The machine fairly 
stutters with dollar and question marks. Some 
one said that two dollar marks in place of your 
number meant you hadn't paid j^our tuition; 
l)ut shucks! who believes that? There is not 
:i fellow in the University that wouldn't pay 
spot cash on the first day of the term or 
earlier. Ben had better send that machine to 
the repair shop or get a new one, believe me. 

Say you Senior Day men, have you not paid 
up your class dues to date? Shame on you! 
])on't expect an old married man like Eppley 
to chase aroiind hunting for you. Step up 
and pay him like a millionaire. The fee Avon't 
break you.

liad a distressing accident while trying a case 
in Part 1 of the Practice Court the other 
M'oek. It appears that the chairs supplied 
for the use of counsel are not strong enough 
for our Aveighty thinkers. The gradual and 
humiliating descent of our illustrious friend 
to the floor to the accompaniment of ominous 
sounds of cracking wood caused him great 
c'Hibarrassment, and, without doubt, seriously 
affected the result of the trial. The iundue levity 
on the part of the Court was quite infectious, 
for even our usually staid and solemn jury 
could not refrain a hearty laugh at Mr. Mac- 
Nabb 's undignified predicament. For the re- 
mainder of the trial our friend was obliged to 
balance himself in a disconsolate heap on the 
court railing. Will not some energetic soul put 
n movement on foot to supply four strong, 
comfortable chairs for this courtroom? 




Some Remarks Made During a Meeting Held by 
the Day Division of the Class of 1915 of the 
Law Department on February 10th. 

Tile present "Honor System"' is iu fact uo 
system at all. While it places each man on his 
honor, it is to a great extent like the moral law. 
Neither our jDresent "Honor System" nor the 
moral law has anj' sanction ; that is, there is no 
way of enforcing them, no one is subject to a 
penalty who disobeys. The only sanction of 
the moral law, if it can be called such, is the 
fear for the future; the only sanction of our 
honor system is our conscience and our self- 

in nearly all of the large colleges and uni- 
versities the students are placed upon their 
honor, and in the larger universities and col- 
leges they have what is usually called the Stu- 
dent Council, which, Avitli the assistance of the 
student body (as will be explained later), en- 
force the rules governing the conduct of the 
students, at least during examinations, and in 
some cases even go so far as to regulate at- 
tendance upon lectures and conduct during 
them. As a general thing it is worked some- 
thing like this: The rules of the "system" are 
drawn up by a committee composed of one or 
two members from each class, which are in turn 
submitted to the whole school for its approval. 
After these rules are adopted, the "Student 
Council, ' ' as we will call it, is organized. This 
council is generally composed of two men from 
each class, these two men being elected by the 
class they represent. If this was followed by 
our Law Department, we would have six men 
on this Council. So far we have stated the ma- 
chinery of the "system," and now we have to 
go into the method in which this machinery is 
worked — the motive power. The student body

is really the "big stick" of the system, for in 
all cases it is an individual — or, more correctly, 
individuals — of the student body which set this 
machinery into motion. It is brought about 
like this: The rules of the "system" invariably 
contain a section addressed to the student body, 
which, although not laying upon its individual 
members a personal and binding mandate of es- 
pionage or delation, does urge upon them, not 
only the moral justification, but the praise- 
worthiness and necessity, as a matter of self- 
protection to the honor of the student body and 
the University, of seeing to it, when assured of 
a case of dishonesty in examination, that the 
Student Council be made aware of same. This 
appeal has brought forth results, at least 
enough results to make those who have no 
honor fear those who have. When a student is 
reported to the Council for "cribbing" his 
name is made public. The Council summons 
him before it and there he is confronted with 
his accusers, and the accusers and the accused 
state the facts in the case. After hearing the 
evidence, as we embryonic lawyers would caj.1 
it, the court decides whether or not the accused 
party is guiltj^ If he is, he is asked to leave 
the college, never to retiiru, although in some 
colleges he is ailoM'ed to return the next year; 
if he is innocent, nothing more is said. If he is 
found guilty and refuses to leave the univer- 
sity, he is reported to the faculty, and, believe 
me, he leaves then. If the guilty party leaves 
upon the suggestion of the Council, only the 
members of that Council know why he leaves 
the university, but when final action is given 
to the faeultj^ they also know the particulars of 
the case. Of course, the parties who give the 
incriminating evidence are aware of the true 
facts, but they are put upon oath not to divulge 
a thing which has occurred before the Council, 
or in regard to its action. 

All agree that the organization of the system 
is practical, but the latter part, the actual work- 
ing of the Student Body and Student Council 
under this system has been questioned, and, 
while it is not the purpose of this article to put 
i'orward an argument for or against the system, 
nevertheless, it will not be out of place to make 
a few explanations concerning that which 
.'-(■ems to have confused some students. 

In the first place, the object of this scheme is 
to keep down any dishonesty by placing an 
obligation directly upon each man's shoulders. 



Each student must realize the duty placed upon 
Mm, and if he does not he Avill at least fear the 
duty placed upon those around him. The fear 
of punishment will keep a student from cheat- 
ing and there will be no need of the Council. 
The object is not to see how many men can be 
put out of the University each year, but by hav- 
ing a penalty to keep a student from "crib- 
bing," and by doing that there will be prac- 
ticallj' no work for the Council to do. 

In the second place, some students have made 
remarks about reporting a friend. Now, the 
situation is this : Is it possible for one student 
to cheat and only his friend next to him see 
him do it? No. Each time a student is dishon- 
est we Avill venture to say there are at least two 
or three men who know of it. One is sufficient 
to bring the charge, and he may call on the oth- 
ers to testify. And, again, do you think if you 
were sitting next to a friend you would alloAv 
him to see you cheat? Not if you and your 
friend had any honor, and you valued his 

'And thirdly, you will note that the Council 
is composed of six members; that is, it would 
be if this system was adopted; then in all de- 
cisions it would be four against two. As a mat- 
ter of fact, it is very seldom that a man is con- 
victed on evidence, but in nearly all cases it is

such a ease "there must be sufficient evidence

A system somewhat similar to the oue given 
above has been tried with success at Cornell, 
Swarthmore, and here in Baltimore it is in 
operation at Gouelier, Johns Hopkins, and in 
the Medical Department of our own University.

Law Department has signified its desire to es-

Mr. Bagby (lecturing on Testamentary Law) 

A man can Avill his property to anyone 

I was going to say to the Man in the 

Moon, but perhaps tliat is flying too high. 
(Help! Help!). 

Why is it we cannot have the lecture rooms 
heated on cold nights and have some ventila- 
tion on warm nights? There can be no reason 
for not having the proper amount of heat — no 
reason other than perhai^s the person who is 
employed to attend to the matter does not get 
paid. If he or they do get paid, then Avhy is 
not proper attention from them insisted on? 
One night (I say one night because it was the 
last night) recently I went over to the library 
to read a case. It was so cold that the librarian 
was Avearing his overcoat and nestling between 
the tiers of books. It was too cold to read, so 
I Avent doAvnstairs to see Avhat was doing in the 
heat line. The fmrnaee was wide open and do- 
ing very little, still doing its best on the amount 
of sustenance it had in its maw. The gentle- 
man whose attentions are supposed to be thus 
engaged was very handy and fully cognizant of 
the condition of aforesaid furnace, but seem- 
ingly unconscious of the result of its condition. 
I might incidentally add that unless the condi- 
tion of the basement of Davidge Hall is bettered 
I will report its present condition to the per- 
sons -whose office it is to know such conditions 
exist and whose office it is to enforce their bet-

This is not a new pro.test. This same condi- 
tion existed as far back as 1906 (I speali now of 
the heating). It apparently has been pigeon- 
holed with a lot of other moth-eaten documents 
hidden away in the fossilized archives of our 
venerable University. "We, the students, have 
to sit inactive for hours in lecture rooms when 
the air is saturated and cold. Can a man en- 
joying such comfort attend eomprehendingly 
to the lecture? 

If men are paid to see that the rooms are 
heated, have them do it or discharge them. If 
they are not paid, pay them. Patience is a vir- 
tue that doesn't excuse somnolence, and it 
seems the masters of our Uuiversitj' have been 
both to extremes. 

Well, exams are over and the reaction has 
set in, so who says smoker, dance or banquet?

It is with pleasure that we announce the 
organization of The Morpheus Club. At a 
recent meeting the following gentlemen were 
selected as officers: High Chief Soper, Walter 
Prem ; Master of Poses, C. B. Smyth ; Inspector 
of Chairs, Yost. Prominent in the orgauiza- 
tiou are Thos. F. O'Neil, Coimcilman Laseh 
and Mr. Saml. IToffberger. 

The night section of the Class of 1915 has 
elected Mr. C. B. Smyth, president ; Mr. Arthur 
B. Niekerson, vice-president; Mr. Chas. G. 
Cooley, secretary ; Mr. John Zimmerman, treas- 
urer; Mr. Harvey Himmel. sergeant-at-arms ; 
Mr. Silverwood, prophet; Mr. Jos. A. Hag- 
gerty, historian and editor to Old Maryland. 


Dr. Robert S. Norfleet, an alumnus of 1897, 
while visiting in Baltimore recently, paid a 
visit to the Dental Department. Dr. Norfleet 
has been practicing in Mexico, and came away 
in response to President Wilson's request that 
all American citizens return to the States. He 
informs his friends that his practice is all that 
could be desired and seems very enthusiastic 

over the opportunities afiiorded him there. It 
is interesting to note that his children speak 
Spanish, while he and his wife, though native 
Americans, have mastered the language and 
speak it fluently. 

Dr. H. Claggett Baker, a practicing dentist 
of Moorefield, West Virginia, was a recent vis- 
itor. He was a graduate of the vear 1895. 

An effort is being made b.y the Dean to have 
as many members as possible from the classes 
of '84, '94, and '04, to meet here at the com- 
mencement for a decennial reunion. Letters 
have been sent out to the graduates of these 
years inviting their presence. Accompanying 
these letters is a list including the names and 
addresses of those composing the particular roll 
of which the men are members. Many re- 
sponses have been had, and prospects are bright 
for many of the alumni of these years to be 
present at the June commencement, 1914. 

Dr. T. 0. Heatwole is now engaged in an ef- 
fort to have the dental student afforded the 
same advantage in meeting his State board ex- 
amination in Maryland as the medical man now 
enjoys. His plan is to have the Board of Ex- 
aminers accept applicants for examination at 
the end of the junior year, the examination to 
be given on subjects finally completed by the 
student in his freshman and junior years. This 
method would take the applicant when he had 
just completed the work, would give him a 
much better opportunity, and would leave only 
senior work for examination necessary to se- 
cure his license to practice. This system of 
examination is employed in many States, and 
seems to be the fairest test that can be given 
the applicant, and because of its justice should 
be adopted more generally. It is to be hoped 
that Dr. Heatwole and those co-operating with 
him will be successful in their efforts. 

Dr. L. J. O'Hearn, of the class of 1913, and 
who is located at Dalton. Mass., writes that on 
February 2nd the block in which his office was 
located burned, caiising him the loss of his 
entire office fixtures. He especially laments 
the loss of his diploma and honor certificate, 
and asks if these can be replaced. His many 
friends Avill be sorry to hear of his misfortune. 



Dental — Senior. 

It is with deep regret that we learn of the 
death of the sister of our classmate, H. T. 
Phelan. He was called home January 30th. 
but his sister had died before he could reach 
her. The class extends sympathy to Mr. Phe- 
lan and family. 

Dr. Davis has instituted a student confer- 
ence system in his operative dentistry class. 
He designates some student to write a paper 
on a particular subject, which is followed by 
general discussion on the part of all the class. 
Gr. J. Whalen has read a most excellent paper 
on "Cavity Preparation," which will soon be 
followed by J. Ben Robinson preparing and 
reading a paper on "Asepsis in Dental Opera- 
lions."' The work is proving very interesting. 

On Sunday evening, February 1st, Mr. C. A. 
Ruppersberger entertained a number of his 
friends at dinner at his home, 2639 Pennsyl- 
vania avenue. Those present were Messrs. 
n^'de. Bristol, Peiper, Robinson, Guerra, Olive 
and Wells, seniors, and Purcell, president of the 
Junior Class. Recall the traditional dinner 
served by the German housewife, and then im- 
agine how these students enjoyed this "even- 

The business manager of Terra Mariae, Ben 
.1. Hammet, has recently had the moving-bug 
invade his diminutive system. He, with his 
pals, Groves, Buist, and Lewis, decided (very 
abruptly) to leave their place of abode at 822 
W. Fayette street. They left so abruptly that 
reports say Ben slept one night on his trunk 
on the corner of Fremont and Fayette streets, 
while the other boys did sentry duty. They 
are now located at 111 N. Fremont avenue. 

Dr. W. B. Daily, of Cleveland, Ohio, gave a 
course of lectures and demonstrations in nitrous 
oxide and oxygen analgesia and anesthesia dur- 
ing the week of January 26th. Those taking 
Hie course and receiving certificates for the 
work done were Messrs. Radice, Spoon. Jen- 
kins, Ward, Wells, Foley, Mitchell, Ruppers- 
berger, Leao, Cocco, Newman and Robinson. 
The men were all pleased and are now enthusi- 
astic supporters of its use in dental operations.

The literature from the Dental Department 
for Terra Mariae has been completed and gone 
to press. It is believed that the quality of 
material to be printed is far above the average 
of the past. There has been an attempt to 
minimize the objectionable features and com- 
pletely eliminate the vulgar which has been so 
characteristic of the past annuals. Bach senior 
will find accompanying his picture a brief 
sketch, which is meant to resemble the subject 
and to, be interesting to his friends. Every man 
in the Dental Department, and especially the 
seniors, should purchase a Terra Mariae, 

We are informed by one of the men from the 
Junior Medical Class that our old friend Gold- 
man has been made chief denionsti'ator of the 
"osteology clinic." When we were on that 
side it looked as though "Squire" Justice 
would be able to hold his monopoly of the busi- 
ness. Guess he can't make the "bones articu- 
late" like Goldman ean, oh, Goldie? 

If possible, we would like to impress upon 
that obtuse individual in the Medical Depart- 
ment who keeps harping on a "Glee Club" that 
such an organization has been in existence at 
the University for a year and has appeared in 
jjublic on different occasions. We did not wait

Mr. Buie, of the Junior Medical Class, has 
written a very able article on the honor sys- 
tem, Avhieh has provoked discussion in our de- 
parment of its application here. He is very 
enthusiastic, and seems anxious to see this sys- 
tem become general and reach the ideal in its 
practice at the University. ^Ve heartily agree 
with him in his proposition of universal honor, 
and will lend our support to auy action that 
will help and better our student body, or 
change for the better the student's conception 
of honor. But why should it be necessary to 
have such a s.ystem? In all the argument there 
was not sufficient reason why students are dis- 
honest, nor wliat the causes of irregularities 
are. Did it ever oceiar to him that methods of 
instruction and examination systems may tend 
to stimulate dishonesty in the ranks of the stu- 
dent body, in which case the honor system is 
not "one which concerns the student body 
alone ' ' ? When instruction is such that one- 
third of a class must fail on finals and where 
finals are prepared to trip up and not act as a 
fi'ue measure of knowledge (as near as possi- 
ble), men forget all but the idea of self-preser- 
vation and commit acts that in saner moments 
would be repugnant. We do not mean to eon- 
done wrongdoing or defend dislionest.y. but 
we do mean to stand for justice even if the in- 
significant student is on the short end. Let's 
discuss it in full in the nest issue of "Old Mary-

Freshmen Notes — Dental. 

"Joe'" Franklin has gotten the auto-racing 
bee so firmly fixed in his bonnet that it seems 
impossible for him to dislodge it. He recently 
enjoyed ( ?) an unwilling ride in the beautiful 
machine belonging to the B. P. D., which seems 
to have knocked the buzz out of the "bee." 

It may be true that T. T. Smith (Tall Tow- 
head) is lean, but judging from the size of the 
lunch he carries he should be able to make 
"Mike" Moran the high man when see-sawing 

Mau.y of our boys are spending both time and 
"simoleons" on Wednesday afternoons at 
Keating 's Dancing Academy. The boys are 
there when it comes to "tripping the light fan- 
tastic toe." 

We sincerely regret the loss of our friend 
Cre.spo of Guatamala, who returned to his home 
recently. It seems that the severe winter in 
Baltimore was too cold for him. 

The midyear exams are over and the boys 
are happy. They girded on the Armor of Study 
and overcame the enemy — or at least these re- 
ports are in "circulation." 

We are verj' glad to announce that our es- 
teemed classmate. Hobbs, who was recently op- 
erated on for appendicitis, is convalescing. 

Sehaetfer is not satisfied with his full upper 
and lower and is making other ones. He does 
it because he likes the work. 



Several of our uieii who hope to be admitted 
into the mysteries of our fraternal organiza- 
tions will soon battle witji the goat. Here is 
Avishing them pleasure and success. 

The freshmen are looking forward to the 
time when they will be permitted to wear oper- 
ating coats and stand upstairs in the lobby 
like a real student. The time will soon come, 

Since Albert has shaved off his soup sti-aiuer

While we feel a hesitancy in criticising, it 
looks like something should be done in the way 
of lighting the freshmen laboratory. Two six- 
teen candle-power lights and a few gas burners 
do not provide sufficient light after 3 o'clock.

Pharmacy — Senior. 

After reading the senior mid-year examina- 
tions papers Dr. Caspari has come to the con- 
clusion that the senior class as a body should 
be elected to serve on the division committee 
of the U. S. P. The number of new theories 
advanced by the senior class, so impressed the 
Doctor, that he did not fail to congratulate 
them upon their good work. One of the stu- 
dents suggested a new method for titrating 
Tartar Emetic, which Dr. Caspari said was a 
credit to modern pharmaceutical chemistry. 

Tu view of the fact that Mr. MeClure is go- 
ing to be married shortly, and also the high 
cost of living, we urgently request that the 
members of the senior class help to defray the 
expense of Mr. MeClure 's picture which will 
adorn our class book. 

It took many Aveeks of earnest persuasion 
to get Mr. MeClure to consent to having his 
picture taken, Avhich he claims was done solely 
for the reason, that the future generation of 
the MeClure 's should have some remembrance 
of his beautiful golden Teddy Bear Locks.

The class has appointed a committee, Avhich has 
appealed to the Federated Charities for lielp, 
to defray the expense of the picture. 

We are glad lo see that Dr. Caspari has 
practically recovered from his recent misfor- 
tune in having his collar bone groken. His 
strong constitution and great will power no 
doubt played a large part in his speedy re- 

Dr. Burger, Phar.D., LL.B., began his se- 
j'ics of lectures on Pharmaceutical Law, Feb- 
ruary 9th, 9 A. M. Dr. Burgei' was graduated 
from the Maryland College of Pharmacy, in 
1892 and shortly afterwards began the study 
of law. He is now actively engaged in prac- 
tising law and is a member of the Avell-known 
law firm of Hinkley, Hisky & Burger. 

Dr. Burger in his series of lectures will at- 
tempt to shoAv the druggist his legal status as 
a druggist, especially in regards to the pure 
food law. 

In view of the fact that the pure food law is 
no longer called one of those ncAV faugled 
ideas, and that it is here to sta.y; and that it 
is being more drasticly enforced each year by 
both the State and the Federal government, the 
course should be very valuable, not only to 
the students at school, but also the druggist 
Avho is clerking or has his OAvn store. 

The Faculty heartily invites its former grad- 
uates to attend this series of lectures, and 
they Avish it clearly understood that there will 
lie no fee charged for attending same. 

Among some of the graduates Avho are at- 
tending the lectures are Misses Blattstein, Lots, 
Cole, Mossop, and Sonnenberg. They were

"Those whom the Gods would destroy they 
first make mad" — so spoke Themistoclese as 
he crossed the Rubicon. According to that 
there is going to be a wholesale destructive pro- 
cess around our camp. The fact of the matter 
is thus — a bunch of the medics connived of the 
idea that it was about time to get out the glad 
rags and try a few steps at the Turkish Trot 
and the Hesitation Squeeze and, accordingly, 
made all the necessary arrangements save one. 
which aforementioned arrangement was the 
getting of both "per" and "late-per" for a 
few of the guardians of the thermometer and 
the B.D. -Chart, but as there is a Divinity who 
shapes our ends, etc., subsequent developments 
turned out via contre coup and the above men-

told to forget it And thusly, the scheme fell, 
was squashed, suffered defeat, went up in

Colonel Charles Baker Clotworthy, LL.B., 
class of 1889, member of the bar, former Police 
Commissioner and former commander of the 
Fifth Maryland Eegiment, died at his home, 
104 Woodlawn road, Eoland Park, from 
phthisis, February 11, 1914. 

Colonel Clotworthy was born in Baltimore, 
October 26, 1867, a sou of William Pitt and 
('atherine (Mattingly) Clotworthy, and was 
descended from Irish and English ancestors. 
He was educated in private schools and the 
Friends' High School, graduating from the lat- 
ter and afterward taking a post-graduate 
coursp. For about a year after leaving sckool 
he was engaged in commercial pursuits, then 
turned: hiu, attention to law, and became a stu- 
dent in the oi'fice of J. Southgate Lemmon, and 
at the same time entered the law department 
of the' University of Maryland, from whichi he 
graduated in 1889. In 1893 he became Mr. 
Lemmon 's partner, with whom he was asso- 
ciated' tliroug'hout the remainder of his life. 

During the late War with Spain, Colonel 
Clotworthy was captain of Company G, of the 
FiftJi Slaryland Volunteers. He. was after- 
wards promoted to the grade of major and 
later colonel of the Fifth Eegiment, succeeding 
General Henry M. Warfield, wh.en the latter 
was appointed Adjutant General by Governor 

In August, 1909, he was married to Miss Ella 
T. Eeeves. of Baltimore. 

He v,"a& a member of the Maryland Bar As- 
sociation, Bar Association of Baltimore City, 
Maryland Club, Baltimore Club, Merchants' 
CI' lb and Elk Eidge Kennel Club. 

Although he had been in failing health for 
several years, his death came as a skaek to his 
many friends. In speaking of his death, Judge 
Gbrt.r had the following to say: . 

"Colonel Clotworthy was a man who took 
groat interest in all civic affairs, and he was a 
public- sjjirited citizen. He was a careful and 
paiustajjing lawyer who tried his cases with 
unusual ability, seeing the salient points and 
urging them upon the court. I have noticed of 
late year'.; how very ably he presented his eases, 
alwMy^ thoroughly prepared, thus greatly aid- 
ing the court in arriving at a just conclusion. 

"In his death the bar and the people of this 
city have sustaired a distinct loss. It is with 
great I'egret and sorrow that the announce- 
ment bi his death is received. ' '

.Ml-. Toastinastei;, Guests and Classmates: 

It is needless forme to tell you that it is a 
distinct honor to again have the pleasure of ad- 
dressing you, and it is with some degree of re- 
luctance that 1 do so, inasmuch as 1 fear to 
axjjjear i>resumptiious in thtis thritsting myself 
upon you. However, since I have but a ii-w 
observations to make, I shall crave your indul- 
gence for a brief space of time. 

I assume that this banquet was brought 
a))out, aside from the general pleasures that 
we as individtials may derive from it, for the 
express purpose of strengthening those ties 
which were so magnificently and admirably, 
but at the same time unconsciously, made at 
our last and memorable gathering. Surely the 
line spirit exhibited at that banquet could not 
have been excelled. Who is he here tonight 
hut what can look back upon that grand ban- 
quet without a feeling of peculiar joy — nay, a 
certain pleasure which does not come to him 
upon reflection in the recalling of any event of 
the past year? I know this to be a broad state- 
ment, but, nevertheless, I believe it to be a 
substantially true one. 

It must be obvious to the most casual ob- 
server that this banquet had a remarkable ef- 
fect in bringing the students closer together, 
and, from my own personal knowledge, it has 
I'.aused a certain brotherly and collegiate at- 
mosphere to pervade the halls of the Uia,iver- 
.sity, which, prior to this banquet, struck one 
as being in a great measui-e cold, barren and 

.Surely this was the desirable I'esult of that 
gathering, and as long as we have attained this 
much, Avhy not reinforce that spirit as a result 
of this banquet? Let us all stand together and 

*Address delivered at the Mid-Winter Ban- 
(|uet of the Intermediate Law Class, held at 
Kernan's Hotel, March 16, 1914. 

acclaim in one big, lusty-lunged voice that we 
ai'e the University of Maryland. Let us re- 
gard the name of the University as a badge oL' 
honor by every member of this class. We 
should he proud of the fact that we are niem- 
bei-,s of the class of Ifllo and should take pride 
ill participating in its affairs. 

It is incumbent upon us as future seniors to 
sow the seeds of genuine college and profes- 
sional spirit by awakening the gentle slumber 
of which this venerable institution has indulged 
in for the past hundred years. This can be 
done by taking an interest in the University 
aside from our regular purpose down there. 

As strange as it may seem, nevertheless, the 
massive fact remains that some of the students, 
especially those who are Baltimoreans, do not 
seem to appreciate the University and what it 
offers as they should. No one realizes or is in 
a better position to see this than myself. Down 
in North Carolina, my home state, it seems 
that the height of every energetic and ambi- 
tious young man's desire is to obtain a degree 
from his university. There they are proud of 
their school, its traditions, its professors and 
everything connected with the University of 
Carolina. Does the same feeling obtain in Bal- 
timore for the University of jMaryland'? Gen- 
tlemen, you may answer this (|uestion for your- 
selves. If it is to be answered in the negative, 
is it then because the University of North Caro- 
lina is more advanced or superior to our Uni- 
versity here? A glance at their Law School 
curriculum will satisfy you that it is not, and 
also. Why has the I'niversity of Maryland a 
bigger, broader and better reputation not only 
in North Carolina, but also throughout the 
South, than it has in its home state? IIow is it 
that when I go home on my vacations, people 
down there ask me what school I am attend- 
ing, and, when told the University of Maryland, 
I hear nothing but praise for this old school? 

The answer to this situation may be ex- 
plained tliusly: Down in Xortli Carolina, and 
in almost every other Southern state, the prin- 



eipal seat of learning is loeMed in some small 
town, or village ; consequently, in order to se- 
cure a collegiate education, it necessitates one 
rljeing away from home and also puts one to a 
considerable expense. Now, for a Baltimorean 
to secure the same education, does it require 
being away from home? Does it put him to 
auy appreciable expense? It seems that the 
things we acquire after the most trouble we 
most appreciate. Gentlemen, 1 confess frankly 
that a great many of the Students remind me 
of the boy who sees candy in the shop window 
and has the greatest desire for it, but no money 
with which to buy it; he later secures a posi- 
tion in that store, but there is so much candy 
arid it can be had so easily that the desire for 
it is gone. Indeed, he has not a good word for 
that same candy. This reasoning doubtless 
appears faulty to you, but it is one of the prin- 
cipal conclusions I have been able to arrive at 
as to why there is that lack of spirit which is 
so manifested in other state universities. 

After all, it makes little difference what 
school we may attend, as you all know it is not 
the school that makes the man. It is the man 
himself. The greatest philosopher, legislator 
and lawyer who ever lived Avas Plato, whose 
, philosophy enunciated two thousand years ago 
is still applicable to the affairs of humanity to- 
day ; received his instructions from Socrates, 
who walked the streets of Athens clad in rags 
and who gave his knowledge to any and every- 
body without charge. Of course, classmates, 
all of us cannot become philosophers, nor states- 
men, nor even leading members of the bar, but 
1 do vigorously maintain that if we take ad- 
vantage of everything that the University offers 
us, we can at least become intelligent and eth- 
ical lawyers. 

I believe that the supreme intellectual 
thought in every community comes from the 
highly ethical and learned lawyer and the good 
and learned clergyman. It is the business of 
one to see that justice is done and the business 
of the other to beseech his fellow-men to do 
justice to one another. I believe that every 
professor we have at the University is of the 
former type, and that if we students follow in 
the footsteps, as far as possible, of any of 
them, we shall have done something well worth 
our while. 

1 hold that, without regard to whatever else 
we may be interested in, as long as we are stu- 

dents Me should esteem the affairs of the Uni- 
versity paramount to everything else. This I 
conceive to be the proper spirit to be exhibited 
both in and out of this school. Certainly it 
would not recjuire much effort on our part in 
order to bubble over with enthusiasm. Think 
what we are receiving from it — the most honor- 
able and noblest profession in the world — and, 
comparatively sjieaking, it asks nothing in re- 
turn; but I feel that we are under an implied 
obligation to at least introduce manly spirit; 
to inject enthusiasm in our work and to forever 
extol the virtues of the University. 


' ' To Illustrate What Even a Prof. Will Do in a 

By F. C. Marino, Medicine 16. 

It is a common oceui'rence for one of our 
doctors to tell us what to use for our many ail- 
ments, but never in the history of our ancient 
University has it been the custom or rule for 
a Prof, to so cripple his class that they were un- 
fit for duty for many days afterward. 

It was the moruing of December 2, 1913, when 
Hon. Dr. Patterson stepped inco his favorite 
"Frog" laboratory and addressed his class as 
follows: "Gentlemen, we are assembled here 
today to demonstrate to you, by experiment on 
humans, the wonderful phenomena of 'Reflex 
Action.' I do not wish to compel an.y of you 
to sacrifice yourselves to the cause of science, 
therefore, it behooves me to call for volun- 

A deadly silence fell over the whole class; 
the thought of a mother mourning her lost son, 
a sister mourning a lost brother, and a sweet- 
heart mourning her lost lover, filled the hearts 
of the entire learned body. No one wished to 
sacrifice himself ; all wished to be heroes ; so 
for a time it seemed as if science would be re- 
pulsed for want oi a victim, but such was not 
the case for West Virginian pride had overeoitie 
all thoughts of human safety and there in the 
centre of the room stood the tallest man in the 
class — Noah Short. He was pale and haggard 
and when he spoke everyone noted the lump 
which contimially rose in his throat and blocked 
his speech. Nevertheless, after making his will 



aud bidding liis fYiends good-bye, he walked 
to the front with low hanging head but a per- 
fect step. 

A tear was noted iu Dr. Patterson's eye; he 
hated the ordeal worse than the victim himself, 
but science moves ever onward. After making 
his customary introductory remarks, Dr. Pat- 
terson placed ujDou the tongue of our late Dr. 
Short a dilute solution of oil of mustard. Then 
stepping back as if satisfied with his fiendish 
work, he awaited results. One minute passed 
and our friend was still numbered among the 
living ; two minutes passed and yet no results ; 
fiive minutes, then ten minutes passed without 
action. The class was becoming restless, sighs 
of relief were prevalent throughout the class, 
the intended victim was breathing freely as if 
he had a new claim on life, and Dr. Patterson 
was enveloped by a dilatation of his skin ves- 
sels, commonly known by the fair sex as a deep 
blush. Horrors ! ? ! etc., the experiment had 
failed and repeated trials upon others proved 
equally fruitless. 

For a time it seoned as if the fair experi- 
menter was doomed to failure, but as usual a 
happy thought struck him. He retreated into 
his private laboratory and returned carrying 
another bottle. This time our 350-pound friend, 
Bernard S. Jacobsen, stepped forward. He had 
witnessed the failure of the previous experi- 
ments and had looked with .jealously upon the 
honors bestowed upon tJie previous volunteers. 
He wished to be covered with glory and it was 
this idle desire which led him to offer himself 
as a victim. 

Dr. Patterson again explained the ob.ject of 
his experiment, but he failed to state that, in- 
stead of using diluted oil of mustard, he M^as 
about to use the concentrated form. He was 
Tising desperate means to attain liiH ends, but 
science goes forever onward. 

The real circus or rather fo(jtba]l game now 
began. Jacobsen opened his 6 by 8 mouth and 
Dr. Patterson placed a large quantity of the 
concentrated oil upon the back part of the 
tongue and the beginning of the oesophagus. 
It is needless to tell what occurred. On takijig 
stock after the reaction the following was 

Jacobsen was over the sink trying to show 
everyone what he had had to eat the month 
before. One man Avas holding his stomach, 
another his leg, another his head, all the above 

injuries lieing inflicted by the head or feet of 
Jacobsen in his mad football-like rush toward 
goal (sink). Tables were overturned, chairs 
were bi'oken. and Dr. Patterson was standing in 
the rear, smiling with childish delight. 

He had saved his reputation at the expense 
of Jacobsen 's breakfast, dinner and supper, but 
science moves forever onward. 


By J. A. Haggerty, Law, '15. 

Recently, in an Eastern Police Court, the 
Judge had before him several of the partici- 
jiants iu what had bidden fair to become a riot, 
and which was only averted by the timely in- 
tervention of a squad of reseryes, who, after 
dispersing the crowd, found it necessary to 
fill the wagon with the ones who were so un- 
fortunate as to have come in contact with the 
swinging batons of the policemen. 

The Judge, after exhausting the ability of his 
intei'preters, in trying to elicit from those be- 
fore him an explanation of the affair, said: 
"Yez can shpake some languidge, and yez'll 
shpake English or I'll put the gang of ye in 
jail foi" the r«st of your naturool lives." 

This seemed to have the desired effect, for 
one little Italian who was much battered and 
bantlaged, spoke up — "Your Honor, T toUa you 
de whole bizness hava he's a start froma de

Members of the General Alumni Association, 
Please Give This Notice Your Prompt At- 

Fellow Members of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation, we are desirous of impressing upon 
yon the necessity of signing the below attached 
slip. Since taking over "Old Maryland," our 
subscription list has materially increased and 
in like proportion the mailing expense. There 
is a hitch in having "Old Maryland" granted 
the privilege of second-class mailing rates, be- 
cause the General Alumni Association cannot 
furnish proper credentials signifying the wil- 
lingness of its members to subscribe to same 
through the Association, viz: at the rate of 

"Collar Hug" Clothes 

"Manhattan" Shirts 


Baltimore and Liberty Sts. 

50 cents per annum. As "Old Maryland" has 
been offered as. one of the inducements for be- 
coming a member of the aforementioned Asso- 
ciation, we would appreciate the courtesy of 
each member signing the attached slip and 
mailing it to us as early as possible. The 
second-class privilege means a great and neces- 
s;u'y saving to "Old Maryland." 

In order that you may more fully appreciate 
the position in which we are placed, we beg 
to publish herewith a letter from the Acting 
Third Assistant Postmaster General, which 
clearly states the position of the Post Office 
authorities in the matter, and shows how im- 
possible it is for us to have "Old Maryland" 
placed in said class without the co-operation 
of its nuunbers. 


"Washington, February 28, 1914. 
"Natlian Winslow, M.D., 
Editor 'Old Maryland', 
Baltimore, Maryland. 
"Sir: In answer to your letter of the 21st instant, 
which the Postmaster General has referred to me, in 
regard to the "Old Maryland", application for admis-

'It appears frcm the application for admission of

■ News from the Winternitz Camp. — The first 
nuin to be injured this season was our humble 
pharmacist, J. C. Woodland, whose misfortune 
it was to tell said goat-getter that the Veins 
of the Pelvis emptied into the Ascending Aorta. 
Said pillmaker was virtually presented with a 
house — brick bv brick. 

Our classmate. Peii-y Ross, is going into the 
collar-button business upon the recommenda- 
tion of our Bay Vie^^■ friend, whose remarks 
were as follows: "I think that you will do 
much better in the collar-button business than 
as a doctor." 

NoM- as to that unfortunate Crook episode, 
we beg to be (|uoted that said gentleman was 
not' treated as he should have been. 

We all know that Dr. Winternitz is sure 
some goat-getter, as niany of us have discov- 
ered to our sorrow. 

When Sammy walked into the autopsy room 
that Saturday, he sat down in the one rocker 
in the place, and was told indirectly: "I'm 
very soi-i'y that we can't supply chairs for all 
of you." Of course, Saiii got up and took no- 
tice. Thereafter lie was asked practically every 
other question handed out. Finally a liver was 
cut and the Doctor shoved it ujider Sam's nose 
and asked. "What's the matter with this 
liver?" "Nutmeg liver," was the ansM-er. 
"Well, some people don't know what a nut- 
meg looks like!" Taldeaux.

but we do hate to get that plus H for noth- 
ing. Rather remain ignorant of autopsical pa- 
thology than to sweat blood for one brief hour. 

Well, so be it. 

Methinks it was a good thing for Dr. Winter- 
nitz that Dr. Shipley was on the job. 

All this may seem disrespectful, but we are 
simply stating material facts, however. 

Has anybody here seen Victor? 

Let's get together for another class danee-

When an eye does not react, always think of 
two possibilities — iirst, the Argyll-Robertson's

Purkin and English, had only known this, we

eye an "Argyll" — Robertson's pupil!! 

So long. Winter. HoAvdy, Spring. Walk

Medical — Freshman. 

Once more the season of the year has ap- 
proached when all thoughts are turned to our 
national game, baseball. It is no uncommon 
occurrence to see the boys, who are suffering 
from spring fever, gathered together on the 
campus, recalling the grandstand plays they 
made while playing in the various up-state 
leagues. But far be it from the principles of 
the Freshman Medical Class to lounge around 

and dream of the past. No, sir ! We were of 
the firm belief that these sensational plays 
could be repeated on a baseball nine composed 
of medical freshmen. We worked hard on this 
basis, with the ultimate result of an organized 
team, and are now out for the scalps of any 
collegiate team which may perchance cross bats 
with us. 

We have the material on this team, too. Our 
boys are there with the "pep," and that is the 
first essential of a good team. Fortune has 
smiled on us in having men of collegiate and 
professional baseball on our team. A few of 
these which may be mentioned at random are : 
Francis J. Muleahy, formerly of Georgetown 
University; Jack Skilling, of University of 
Pennsylvania; Frank Merrick, of New York 
State League, and Joseph F. Doyle, of the New 
Hampshire State League. There are other men 
of equally good records whom lack of space 
prevents my mentioning. 

Dr. R. G. Willse, a man of considerable ex- 
perience in collegiate ball, has very kindly of- 
fered to act as onr efficient coach. 

The very "enviable" position of manager we 
"wished" on D. Edgar Fay, whom we have 
every reason to believe possesses the necessary 
ability, and "believe me," he has the "pep" 
to accomplish things. He tells us that his 
schedule is not as yet complete, but that he has 
games scheduled with some of the strongest 
teams in this and adjoining states. Pie would 
like to get into communication with the other 
teams of the University and schedule them for 
a game. Owing to the early date at which this 
paper will have to go .to press. Manager Fay 
will not be able to publish his complete line-up 
and schedule for the year, but hopes to be able 
to do so in the next issue of "Old Maryland." 

There have been several suggestions made in 
regard to the new "Dormitory," and also in 
J'egard to a memorial tablet and a scholarship 
in memory of Dr. Eugeue F. Cordell. All these 
a]-e now "up to" the Faculty and Board of 

There are fifteen hundred in the student 
body, and most of them are scattered over the 
city in little boarding houses. Could not a tax 
be levied on the student body to pay for re- 
modeling the Howard street building and mak- 
ing a dormitory of it and calling it Cordell 
Alemorial Hall ? The charge for staying in the 



building could be made to cover all expense of 
maintenance. It would mean a great stej) in 
concentrating this ra2:)idly growing University 
spirit if we were to have hundreds of our fel- 
low students housed together uiuler the same 

Our classmate, Mr. Miller, has gone in for 
philanthropy. Within the past week he pre- 
sented the exchequer of the City of Baltimore 
with five and a half perfeetlj- good simoleons. 
Why? Ah! thereby hangs a tale. But our ad- 
vice to Mr. Miller is to keep to the broad and 
straight path in the future. 

Come on, fellows; let's whoop it up for the 
baseball team. Who'll come out and try, even 
though he knows that he has no chance for the 
team'/ You know that there must be scrubs to 
give the regulars jjractice. 

Haven't we any men in the class who are 
track men who are willing to go in with St. 
-John's against the other teams of tlie asso- 

Baseball time here, but winter refuses to ab- 
dicate in favor of spring. It is as bad as the 
President of Mexico. 

Almost time to begin to think of liuals. 
What say? 


Some Class Spirit, This! 

On P^i'iday the 20th last, the senior and ipter- 
iiu'diate classes of the Law Department came 
into a serious clash as to which side should 
occupy tlu= senior lecture room. Mr. Randolph 
Barton, Jr., had been winding up his final 
lecture on Legal Ethics to the senior class in 
the Senior Lecture Hall. This lecture was to 
tal^e place between 8 and 8,30 P. M. The in- 
tei'Miediate class had no intimation that such, 
a lectui'e was to be held and fully expected 
to find the hall empty when they came for 
their regidar practice court at half past eight. 
Ml'. Barton had been re(|uested to hold his 
(lass over for a few minutes until Mr. G. 
Ridgely Sappington of the practice court could 
be pi-esent to nuike a special announcement to 
the entire senior body. While awaiting' Mr. 





McKee Surgical Instrument Co. 


Sappington, who was a few minutes late, Mr. 
Barton took occasion to add a number of im- 
l)ortant points to his remarks, which he did 
not conclude until Mr. Sappington had been 
|)resent for some six or eight minutes. In the 
meantime the intermediate class which had just 
been released from another lecture swarmed up 
the stairs leading to the senior hall, and noisily 
endeavored to grain access to the lecture hall 
ill their usual manner. Instead of quietly re- 
tiring when one of the seniors with an air of 
much dignity, importance, and self-esteem de- 
manded that their unseemly noises be discon- 
tinued they vociferously endeavored to force 
entrance to the already overcrowded hall. Bent 
upon hearing the end of Mr. Barton's remarks, 
a number of stalwart seniors held the dooi' 
closed by sheer force. Outside bedlam reigned. 
Shouts, cheers, facetious remarks and the 
thundering of fists and heels upon the door 
worked up both sides to a fighting pitch. A 
severe rebuke to these scorners of legal ethics 
on the outside and to the persistent holders of 
the lecture room on the inside, would seem to 
lie not only necessary but beneficial. Even the 
arrival of Mr. Sappington failed to luive the 
pi-oper soothing effect. The moment he eon- 
eluded the few remarks for which the seniors 
had waited, the latter in a sudden charge bui-st 
open the doors and thi-ust themselves in an 
unexpected attack upon the intermediates, who 
wore eagerly awaiting a similar t-hanee to gel 
at the seniors. At the first xharge of th<' 
seniors, the moi'e timid members- of the inter 
mediates i-ushed wildly and teri-or stricken 
down the stairs, yelling. "The seniors arc coin- 
ing I" The more stalwart of the intermediates. 
h()^vever, held their ground and called for I'oin- 
foreemeuts, to which the intermediates rallied 
ai'lei' the first terror of battle had ])assed. Led 
on by Messrs. Noonan, Harris, Reed, and Col- 
linson, long familiar with rushes between the 
('ity College and the Polytechnic, the seniors 
I'epi'esenting both day and night division'^, 
made a heavy onslaught upon the internunliate 



meu, headed by Messrs. Zimmernian, Cooley, 
KaHode, and Haggerty, who madly rushed into 
the thickest of the fray. Then the battle was 
waged in earnest. For ten or fifteen minutes 
there was a wild conglomeration of arms and 
legs, as each side fondly embraced each other. 
The corridor at the head of the stairs was soon 
a seething mass of excited students, swaying 
now this waj' and now that in an endeavor to 
gain the mastery and force their o^jponents 
down the steps. The practice court session 
was for a time ignored. Remonstrance una- 
vailing, Mr. Barton and Mr. Sappington were 
obliged to remain within the senior room. Many 
a new spring derby suffered sadly in the fray. 
Collars were torn off, watches smashed, aud 
eyes painted beautiful hues, in a worthy en- 
deavor to hold up the honor of tjieir respective 
classes. A feature of the rush was the clash 
between 0. Y. Harris, of the seniors, and S. 
Silverberg, of the Intermediates. It seems that 
during the raging conflict, Harris was so im- 
polite as to stick his index finger into Silver- 
berg's optic, to which Silverberg strenuously 
objected, and Silverberg was equally impolite 
as to grasp Harris fondly around the neck. 
Neither of these tactics was appreciated by the 
other and they distributed their compliments 
on each other with wonderful effect. Men from 
both sides rushed to the rescue of their leaders 
and by the time Mr. Dickerson, assisted by Mr. 
Barton and Mr. Sappington intervened, this 
most serious part of the affair was called to a 
halt. Some fifteen or twenty men of both sides 
made their exit over the railing during the 
encounter. For the most part, however, the 
whole aft'air was taken in a good natured spirit 
and everything terminated in a most friendly 
manner, members of both classes carrying off 
members of the other side and rendering first 
aid to the wounded. 

"Old Maryland is glad to note that both day 
and night men have at last worked together 
so harmoniously even though it be in an affair 
of this nature. The old feud between the day 
and night students has' now been entirely ob- 
literated and a warin friendship has sprung up 
between these former bitter enemies. We are 
sure that prospects look quite bright for Uni- 
versity spirit in the Law Department in the

"March 7, 1914. 
' ' Dr. Nathan Winslow, University of Maryland, 

Baltimore, Md. 
"My Dear Dr. Winslow: — 

"In looking over the March issue of 'Old 
Maryland,' I notice reference to a proposed 
Commercial Department for the University, 
and it interested me very much. 

"I am led to say sincerely that a Depart- 
ment of Commerce would not only dignify and 
elevate the Maryland University as an educa- 
tional power in the State, but keep abreast of a 
very distinct and obvious trend in this direc- 
tion upon the part of several Western univer- 
sities. Notable among such are the Universi- 
ties of Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

"We are beginning to recognize that com- 
mercial education has been wastefully neg- 
lected in the collegiate and university curricu- 
lums of our country, and for that reason so 
many of the youth enter upon commercial life 
luiqualified, untrained and unskilled. 

"Our Association is endeavoring to foster a 
deep consciousness in the minds of educators 
that this defect in our educational system must 
be quickly repaired, and we are discerning as 
a result of our efforts a distinct tendency now 
to create commercial departments and commer- 
cial forums in our universities. Not only does 
this education extend to the banker, manufac- 
turer and wholesaler, but even to the retailer; 
and we cannot hope to decrease our bad debt 
waste until the youth are just as directly and 
eft'ectually trained in commercial transactions 
as is the medical and legal practitioner quali- 




fied to analyze bodily and legal complications. 

"It would afford nie the very deepest pleas- 
ure to have the University of Maryland take 
hold of this idea in a sincere and generous way 
and to give to the old Commonwealth a depart- 
ment in which its youth may be trained for 
offieieuey and success in commercial pursuits. 

"Trusting you are well, and with sincere re- 
gards, I am, yours very trulj^,

Law — Senior. 

March 6. 1914. 
To the Editor-in-Chief of "Old Maryland": 

It has been said that some lawyers owe their 
financial success to their ability to distort the 
truth. It has also been said that some news- 
paper reporters owe their success to their abil- 
ity to make up original stories without waiting 
for real news. I was just thinking that indica- 
tions would point to a success of that kind for 
the editor representing the Senior Law Class 
in "Old Maryland," provided he has sufficient 
memory to be consistent in his subsequent 

The counsel in one of the cases in the Prac- 
tice Court recently was iinable to appear at 
the trial, and the writer was importuned and 
finally persuaded to take his place. While the 
Court was passing on the prayei's after the 
arguments were all in, the chair occupied by 
the writer became weak and started to go 
down, so that it had to be abandoned. The 
learned editor or sub-editor representing the 
Senior Law Class, with, perhaps, visions of pro- 
prietorship of some great papei- like the "Sun" 
or the "American," or else a position on their 
reportorial staff, used this as the basis for quite 
a write-up in his paper, in which the writer 
hei'eof was depicted as having been precipi- 
tated to the floor by reason of the breaking 
down of his chair, to his great embarrassment. 
It was also stated that this accident materially 
affected the result of the case, intending to in- 
dicate that the counsel thus affected was un- 
able to proceed properly with the case. The 
writer M^as also depicted as having to huddle 
in a heajj on the Court railing. 

Now the writer hereof is not unlike the

he is tall. He may have looked awkward 
under the circumstances, as I have seen others 
in less extenuating circumstances. The writer, 
however, at the time of the trial of the case in 
the Practice Court, had tried other cases in 
which .real money was involved and certainly 
had passed through the embarrassing stage. 
The writer admits having in times past wished 
for some hole in the floor in which he could 
have vanished through, but at the time of the

It is said that one's reputation acquired 
early in a professional career affects his whole 
life. Certainly a good reputation is an asset 
not to be despised in any profession or busi- 
ness. On the contrary, a reputation for un- 
truthfulness must in the end be disastrous, not 
only to the party himself, but to those who 
depend on him. The writer wishes to express 
the hope, therefore, that our learned law editor 
will not let his gi'eat ambition obscure this 
homely truth; that none of his clients will suf- 
fer by reason of such propensity in our learned 
editor, if lu- decides to i:)racticc law after his 
graduation from the worthy institution he now 
represents; and that he will be an honest, true 
lawyer and an honor to the profession he is 
about to enter upon, and that he will not in the 
future' distort facts or be untruthful for pur- 
poses of immediate gain. Very truly yours, 


Only those Seuioi's who have paid their class 
dues up to date will be eligible to partake of 
certain surprises that are being planned for 
the Seniors after graduation. A word to the 
Avise is sufficient. Pay promptly.

Senior Theatre Party. 

The day and uight classes of the Senior year 
held a theatre jjarty at the Academy of Music, 
Friday night, March 13th. Hattie Williauiw 
and Richard Carle gave a musical comedy enti- 
tled "The Doll Girl." The scenery was beau- 
tiful, especially in the first act, which repre- 
sented a scene in a French college. The acting, 
Avhile not exceiDtional, was quite acceptable. 
The groui^ings in the various songs were quite 
Ijretty. Richard Carle made quite a hit in a 
bit of pantomime with a clever fellow dressed 
as his double. The costumes were exquisite 
and changed frequently. Both the second and 
third act opened with a whirl of dancing, the 
one in a gay Parisian ballroom and the other 
on a hotel lawn in the moonlight. The Seniors 
were well represented, two boxes being filled,

Mr. Daly, of the West Publishing House, 
( 'hicago, spent a week with us the past month, 
giving his anniuxl lectures to the Senior Class 
on ' ' The LTse of Law Books. ' ' 

The president of the Senior Night Class very 
nearly required the assistance of one or two 
husky Dental men the other Friday night. 
Owing to close juxtaposition of class hours, he 
was comijelled to finish Ms dessert in Ana- 
tomical Hall during pleading exercises. Un- 
fortunately, Mr. Sappingtou called upon him 
at that most inopportune moment when our 
friend's molars had inextricably imbedded 
themselves upon a tenacious bit of Ortmuller's 
best taft'y. The combination was most disas- 
trous, not oniy to the dignity of our worthy 
president and his answer, but to the general 
order and well being of both lecturer and class. 
"Old Mai'yland" suggests that a few morsels 
of Iluyler's bonbons might be more easily and 
hastily disposed of in an emergency. 

"Old Maryland" hastens to apalogize to the 
Senior Day Treasurer, Mr. G. A. Eppley, for 
the great oversight in speaking of him in our 
last issue as a married man, thus, in no small 
measure, spoiling his future chances for matri- 
monial bliss. We most earnestly desire that 
these lines may come to the notice of any of 
those bewitching young damsels who, having 
set their caps for our worthy treasurer, were 
distressed to learn, through our gross negli- 
gence, of a former entanglement. We pros- 
trate ourselves in humility before Mr. Eppley 
for our misconduct. Our only hope now is that 
this advertisement of Mr. E's presence upon 
the matrimonial market will not cause him to 
become unnerved by the number of proposals 
that will shortly flood his office.

Law — Intermediate. 

The Intermediate Class of the Law Depart- 
ment has taken upon itself the task of placing 
the University of Maryland on the map, and 
they are going to do it all by themselves and 
will brook no interference from other classes. 
The Intermediate Class — or otherwise known 
as the Law Department — is living, acting, pro- 
gressing, and is leaving a trail of light in its 
wake. The Senior Chiss is impossible, jjoor old 
brain-fagged molly-coddles who have no time 
for anything but home, chicken and a lecture. 
Tiu^ Juniors are almost hopeless; they've been 
here nearly a year, and but for the fact that 
yovi occasionally see a shy, stooped figure with 
a froggish expression on its face slink by yon 
wouldn't know there was a Junior Class. The 
intermediate Class is the dominant factor in 
class life (ask the Senior class "avIio's 
boss."). If the other classes are satisfied to 
sleep and let the University of Maryland con- 
tinue its Kip Van Winkle stunt, the Interme- 



diate Class is not. So farewell, poor old Se- 
niors and Juniors. Forward, Intermediate. 
Sorry we are to disturb our poor old Univer- 
sity's slumber, but we're going forward and it 

must go along. 

Judge Rose to keep up must keep his voice 
up, and to keep liis voice up is a strain on him. 
Therefore, the members of the class should con-

ing out and banging the door during his lec-

On the evening of April 14th there will be a 
concert-dance given by the University Glee 
Club and Orcliestra. The former has been or- 
ganized through the efforts of Dr. W. A. Rea. 
and the present performance will be under his 
direction. The latter is the result of Mr. Sal- 
vador A. Cocco's applied energy, and through 
his untiring efforts a degree of perfection has 
been attained that jsutifies the appearance of 
the orchestra on this occasion. 

l^r. Rea has been working for over a year 
with the Glee Club organization, and in that 
time has been gratified by having the boys ap- 
pear on two different occasions with a vei-y 



creditable showing. He lias at present between 
twenty and twenty-five men who are working 
diligently to put on a first-class program in- 
tended for the first appearance before the Uni- 
versity body. These twenty-five voices range 
so well that an admirable arrangement of num- 
bers on parts can be secured. 

Mr. Cocco, of the Dental Senior Class, has 
his orchestra W'ell advanced in their practice, 
and his friends and co-laborers are confident 
that he will bring the boys imder him to a de- 
gree of perfection which will be most gratify- 
ing to the friends of the school. The leader is 
fully qualified for his work, having had several 
years' experience in orchestra work, and a 
graduate in music. 

Both Glee Club and Orchestra are made up 
of University boys from all departments, and 
are doing their best to bring honor to the insti-

course, are availing themselves of this oppor- 
tunity to keep out of the hands of the law.

this nor feel a bit surprised, as this gentleman

Wliile reading on Saturday afternoon, Marcli 
6tli, in the lower Y. M. C. A. hall, I heard a 
noise not unlike thunder, which an instant later 
proved to be someone stumbling into the hall 
by way of the west door of the main entrance, 
who, upon entering the room, disrobed his coat 
and spread it over- one of the larger tables, 
which, as we know, adds to the attractiveness 
of the periodicals( ?), as if trying to encircle 
it as a hen would hover over her little ones. 

After making what seemed upon its com- 
pletion to be an official inspection of the swim- 
ming pool, shower baths, gymnasium rooms and 

ix'turning to the reading room, he volunteered 
the remarks: "The place seems to be in pretty 
lair condition at this time" (in the tone of 
voice which would suggest that he had inter- 
ested himself enough to have detected before a 
less creditable condition of affairs). "Yes," I 
replied, at which moment it occurred to me 
that he perhaps was alluding to an article in 
"Old Maryland" which, incidentally, had been 
called to my attention an hour or so before. 
Upon this recollection, 1 answered in the affirm- 
ative, and added: "Who was the thoughtful 
writer?" Pointing his right index finger to, 
and pressing upon his second vest button, and 
at the same time with that characteristic but 
meaningless smile, very egotistically said, "I." 
Whence he (like the fairies when they have 
accomplished their purpose) instantly made his 

As regards the condition of the basement of 
Davidge Hall, would say that it is entirely out 
of the jurisdiction of the Law Department or 
anyone affiliated therewith. The conditions are 
exactly the same now each day as they were 
at the beginning of the season, and they were 
improved on the particular above-mentioned 
day only from the fact that there are few, if 
any, lectures on Saturday afternoons, for which 
reason the halls are not used as lunch rooms, as 
on all other school days. 

As regards the heat, would say that the fur- 
nace has passed through its "maw" a ton of 
coal approximately every five days — which, by 
the way, is Jiot supplied with the receipts of 
the four membership subscription fees ($1.00 
each per year) from the students of the Law

to the furnace by means of any comiDensation 
from the LaAv Department, who were asked to

and have expressed not a few times, not only 
in manner but in words, their gratification as 
to the conditions of the Y. M. C. A. halls com- 
pared to that of former years and under the 
financial conditions of the slowly but steadily 
progressing branch of the Y. M. C. A. 

In conclusion, would suggest that the adven- 
turer, instead of being a knocker, become a 
booster and bring about a few more subscrip- 
tions from his department.

Learned Professor — "I think the masium 
Septemberus Morneus would apply, but it's 
just possible that the recent ease of Day Class 
vs. Night Class, U. of M. 1915, may have some 
bearing on the question. On the other hand, 
we must consider the lilies, whereas it would 
seem most unfortunate that a law student can- 
not pass the bar (without buying a drink). 
For instance, imagine, if you can, the agony of 
a starving law student as he dreams of a ham 
sandwich. Conversely, imagine the agony of 
the sandwich as it dreams of the student. But 
the facts in this ease differ from those of the 
ease in which the deal held five aces. Here the 
plaintiff, mistaking a bottle of water for a bot- 
tle of gin, swallowed a generous mouthful. But 
he could not withstand the shock received by 
his outraged interior, and within three minutes 
after having showered this water surprise upon 
his digestive system the unfortunate plaintiff 
kicked the bucket and is now looking down 
(or up) upon us. The proposition is well set- 
tled, however, that before you can smoke a 
cigar you must light it. Have I fully answered 
your question?"

University of Maryland, Feb. 29th, '14. 
Dear Father: — 

There have been some big things doing 
around the old University of late. I must tell 
j'ou about the Theta Nu Epsilon cabaret din- 
ner, held at the Rennert on February 28th. It 
was "some feed," Avith great planked steaks 
and yellow, red, white and green things to 
drink. While we were eating, the Royal Ha- 
waiian Sextet, from Honolulu, came dashing 
into the room, singing and dancing between the 

The costume of these people is very interest- 
ing and not at all conventional. The women 
wore short grass skirts and had strings of beads 
around their necks ; their feet were bare and 
their black hair hung down over their bare 

They sing in a wonderful way. Mysterious 
minor notes which majve the creeps run up your 
back. When they dance you don't hear them 
sing, because you are intent on the agility dis- 
played. They can dance almost standing in 
one spot, but once in a while they make one or 
two cute little movements with their feet just 
to show j'ou they can do it. It is true art, and 
there was nothing rude in the performance. 
However, it had a very strange effect on some 
of the overly temperamental men present. Dr. 
Scott and Dr. Stem were much upset and 
clutched the backs of their chairs with excite- 
ment. Every one felt sorry for tnem. 

There was absolutely nothing formal at this 
"feed," and no set speeches, as Dr. Carroll put 
it up to the active members to call on whom 
they wished. At once, all who wished to speak 
began to look conscious, and in other wa.ys let 
it be known that they were on the job. The 
anxious ones had to wait until Dr. Shipley, Dr. 
Edmunds, Dr. Hopkinson and Dr. Neale and 
some half dozen others had "produced." Dr. 
Hopkinson was splendid in his vocal selections. 
He is one of our new honorary members and we 
are proud of him and all of them. It's a fine 
buncli, and gives extra "backbone" to our 
strong fraternity.

Dr. Neale, who is at times a bit forgetful of 
faces, and who once suggested that "walking 
on the hands had advantages," was more than 
usually modest, but we got several good stories 
out of him before he had to beat it for St. Jo- 
seph's. Not so with Dr. Bay, who dug out be- 
fore he could be landed for a speech. 

After a time it was voted that the most hum- 
ble and modest man in the room should be 
selected to illustrate these endowments. The 
lot fell to Dr. Bverlv. wlio looked verv humble

but happy, as he sat pressing a bunch of violets 
to his nose and then to his heart. Dr. Neale 
said that he was the most modest man he knew, 
so we called on him. He told us that this was 
a deceitful world, full of traps for all, and that 
the only Avay not to be observed and caught, 
was not to blow your own horn. Blushingly 
he presented the violets to Dr. Neale, and this 
made a very pretty picture. 

Then Dr. Edmunds attempted to convince 
us that we could well emulate the steam engine. 
We can't do it, for we are human and the en- 
gine is iron, while we are bone and flesh. He is a 
bold man and is proud of "my ward." (That's 
why he thinks so much about engines.) 

Dr. Nathan Winslow Avas very serious and 
dignified. He made a fine si^eech. (H you send 
him this letter he may publish it since I have 
said this about him.) 

Dr. Coleman spoke well. "We had wished to 
hear about the hospital he owned last year, 
but perhaps he does not own it this year. You 
can't always tell, however. We hope he will 
own one at the next "feed." 

And so it went, dear father : It Avas great 
all the way through, and all of us know that 
T. N. E. is the big thing down here. It is a 
fraternity of fraternities, and since Ave have 
no campus or dormitory life to engender col- 
lege spirit. T, N. E. fills the gap in no small 
way. I will send along a list of the men 
present at the dinner. You will see from this 
that it is an honor to belong to such a bunch

The suggestions in our last issue relative to 
a dormitory, a commercial department and 
amalgamation with the Maryland Institute for 
a department of fine arts are well put and 
timely. But we must not lose sight of unity. 
'J'here are two kinds. We can string diamonds 
in a graduated chain, easily broken and parts 
lost. We can mount the same gems into a com- 
pact, durable, glittering cluster. AVhat are the 
aim and outlook of our University? Are we 
endeavoring to string together a chain of 
schools and colleges of varying size, strength 
and brilliancy easily dismembered by petty 
..jealousies and individual pride of birth? We 
li'ust not. Rather are we trying to build up a 
closely fused and welded body, compact, en- 
iluriug, to strive always for yet higher staud- 
jTils in Ihe education of the slate and nation. 

To do this we must get out of our rut and 
u;n-i-(n\e(l lines of thought. We must raise (Uir 
iieals and enlai'ge our vision. We must tliiuk 
.■ind do gr(>at things. 

To obtain results the I'liiversity should be 
belter Hnanced and better housed. We should 
live and liouse our students in a cleaner, 
lieMJtliiei' atmosphere. Thei'e should be an ade- 
quate ;ind liai'mouious gi'OU|> of buildings, with 
land enough for eidargement ennsisteut with a 
healthy gi-o\vth. There should be means for 
chairs in particular sciences, for scholarshijjs 
and I'eseai'ch work. 

Look not aghast or smilingly ]iut this aside 
as the vision of a di^amer. It can be done, if 
we only put our hearts, minds and pocketbooks 
earnestly to the work. 

... I|att^r0 ... 


Did Goucher succeed, or the Y. M. C. A., or 
the Y. W. 's ? Surely, with the vision of a great 
State University before us, we can act, and to 
a purpose. 

Aim high! Fifty thousand? Make it a 
straight million-dollar goal, half to be given 
by the State, provided the balance is raised by 
individual subscrijDtion in ten days. 

Regents, faculty, alumni, students and 
friends of the University of Maryland — rouse 
yourselves to action; awake to the value and 
I'eed of a State University. Let us be doing.

By Thomas Fell 

Provost of the University of Maryland. 

It is generally admitted that the State of 
Jlarylaud has for many years been appropri- 
ating large sums of money annually to the sup- 
port of various institutions of learning over 
which it had no control, and that if the amount 
were concentrated upon a State university bet- 
ter results would be derived by the community. 

The original idea in 1782 of the founders of 
education in this State was to affiliate St. 
John's College, on the Western Shore, with 
Washington College, on the Eastern Shore, so 
as to form the nucleus of the State University 
of Maryland. 

In 1868 the same plan was put forward in 
an excellent bill drafted after the close of the 
Civil War by which St. John's College, Wash- 
ington College and the Maryland Agricultural 
College were affiliated with a law school co 
form a State university. 

The State, however, was not readv at that 
time to adopt this plan, but set itself to evolve 
a satisfactory public school system, which, 
after many years, is now fairly accomplished. 

It was believed, therefore, by statesmen that 
the time had at last arrived when Marj'land 
might face its problem of higher education and 
perfect a comprehensive and constructive 
scheme simihir to that in vogue iji most of the 
Southern and Western States. 

Senator W. J\I. Maloy became interested in 
the subject, and through his efforts the Gen- 
eral Assembly has passed a bill creating a 
I\Iaryland State universitJ^ 

The bill may be said to be the concrete ex- 
pression of the application of the principles of 
efficiency and economy to the field of educa- 
tion, and the incorporation into law of tlie 

"Reprinted from i\\e "Evening Sun" of April 20, 

principle that State-aided institutions must 
come under the direct control of the State, and 
constitute an efficient and co-ordinated whole, 
working in harmony along the most advanced 
lines to a well-defined goal. 

It does not call for the elimination of facul- 
ties and institutions for the purpose of central- 
izing all educational work in a single locality, 
but follows the example adopted in Georgia, 
Ohio, Missouri and elsewhere of co-ordinating 
various colleges under the direction of a cen- 
tral board of regents. 

Its resources will be those of the institutions 
which voluntarily bind themselves together to 
form a co-ordinated and integral whole, and 
which look to the State for support. 

Its governing board will be composed of the 
following: The Governor, the State Comptrol- 
ler, the State Superintendent of Education, six 
persons to be appointed by the Governor for 
terms ranging from two to six years, and none 
of whom shall be connected with any of the 
affiliated institutions of the university, and two 
representatives from each of the institutions 
which may become affiliated with the univer- 

By way of precaution and of emphasizing 
the purely voluntary character of the action of 
affiliating institutions, it is provided that the 
affiliation with the said university of any other 
institution shall not be held to deprive such 
institution of any of its corporate rights, privi- 
leges of franchise under its charter and the 
supplements thereto, nor in any way injurious- 
ly to aft'ect or impair the same, nor vest in the 
said university the right or title to any of the 
property of such other institution, except as 
sliall be mutually and distinctly agreed on in 
writing between the governing bodies of such 
institutions and of the said university. 

The board of regents is fully empowered to 
make and publish rules - respecting the admis- 
sion of institutions which desire to affiliate, the 
courses of study to be prescribed therein, the 



qualificatious of graduation therefrom. It is 
likewise given such appropriate and incidental 
powers as those of acquiring and disposing of 
property, holding commencements, granting 
degrees and terminating agreements of affilia- 
tion where the standards and other conditions 
are not complied with. 

It is desirable that the Governor should sum- 
mon the incorporators without delay, and then 
proceed to make his appointments to the board 
of regents, in order that the organization may 
be effected before the close of the present schol- 
astic session, as the act requii-es that the prime 
duty of the board of regents is to provide for 
a closer relation between the high schools of 
the State and the colleges affiliated under the 
charter, and also between the said colleges and 
professional schools constituting the university. 

With such a law to work under nearly 2,000 
students, being the enrollment of the institu- 
tions specified in the act, will constitute the 
university, and efficiency and order will be es- 
tablished in the field of collegiate education in 
this State; the educational standards will be 
raised to meet those of the most progressive 
States; larger resources, better ec[uippedand 
stronger faculties will combine to promote sci- 
ence and letters ; and, for its large expenditure 
of money, the State will be able to call upon 
an efficient organization for advice and assist- 
ance in the solution of many great economic 
and municipal problems which it will be the 
business of the university to study and ex- 

Madam President, Members of the Alumnae, 

Nurses of the Training School : 
By Mrs. Chas. H. McNabb, nee Venie Weitzel, 
Class of 1894. 

It might seem almost presumption, on my 
part, to accept an invitation to speak to you 
to-night, in this age of progression, on a sub- 
ject in which I 'm confident many of my hearers 
are more "up-to-date" than I could possibly 
be, after nearly four years absence from the 
fold of active service. However, my only ex- 
cuse is, being asked, added to a prick of con- 
science from a dormant sense of duty and 
association of the past, so I trust you will be 
lenient in j^our criticism of a back number, 
as I xinderstand it shall be my small part to 

start the discussion for tonight in a general 
way, and on the theory of: That once a nurse, 
always a nurse, shall venture on this subject 
with a hope of many voices to follow. 

In the beginning, I should like to throw the 
responsibility of the hardship of talking to 
ones own AJumnae (public speaking if you 
choose) somewhere. Let's have a family 
party tonight, a heart-to-heart talk. Why? 
We all stand in exactly the same place on this 
subject. I might say I feel like the man about 
to be hung. Standing in a box, when the trap 
was about to be sprung, looked around — ex- 
claimed — "Oh, why this is a very pleasant 

The fact is, the trap does not always spring 
and we are here to do well or do ill with the 
subject in hand. 

"The Private Nurse — Her Responsibilities." 
What an inexhaustible subject, why, it would 
take, at least, a three day session to dispose 
of it. 

What is the private nurse? She is, at once, 
the nurse, the doctor the domestic regulator 
and civic educator. What a responsibility? 
Ves, her domain far putreaches any four walls 
ever built, altho' many will not accept this 
theory. The fact remains the same. 

The prevailing sentiment is that hers is an 
ju'duous, morbid existence — True, it is arduous 
— necessarily in face of constantly changing 
conditions and adaptability to different tem- 
perments. All joy has a balance in sorrow, 
and while it is our lot to minister much in the 
latter, even this, while not always to our liking, 
goes to make up a stupendous whole — and the 
quotation comes to me, "In Joy we become 
acquainted. In Sorrow we understand." 

Let us look at our responsibilities in the 
guise of a privilege for a few minutes, after 
having shouldered some heavy burden and 
come off victorious, are we not the stronger 
for that experience? I think you will agree 
with me. Do we not choose that very line of 
work, because we prefer it, for some reason 
or another? Does it not follow that we miist 
be better adapted for it than any other? 

With all the vocations open to women, and 
especially trained women, today, there are 
iiianjr avenues of escape, but we do not escape. 
After having entered the private field, I do not 
believe, really and truly, that the majority 
would choose any substitute. There is a side 



of absolute freedom, when that much enjoyed 
"off duty" period comes. That has a unique 
charm — I believe we accept its privileges (it 
may be blindly) as almost equivalent to its 
responsibilities, and if we were asked, after 
appreciating this fact, Avliat we would rather 
be than a private nurse, some of lis would, at 
least, answer the question, as did the Irishman 
in the parley about nationalities. The Scotch- 
man asked the Englishman what he would 
rather be if he were not an Englishman, and he 
said, "Why, a Scotchman." 

The Englishman, in turn, asked the Scotch- 
man what he Avould rather be if he were not 
a Scotchman, and, with due deference, he said, 
"Why, I'd rather be an Englishman." 

Turning to the Irishman, they said, "Pat, 
you are mighty quiet. What would you rather 
be if ,you were not an Irishman?" He replied, 
"And faith and begorry, if I were not an Irish- 
man, I'd be ashamed of myself." 

Are not many graduates, who take other 
positions from time to time, secured from the 
rank and file of the private nurse? 

Is there anj^thing that makes esteem rise in 
your i^ersonal thermometer as a recognition of 
your true worth, (based on primary founda- 
tion principles) in any position to which you 
may be called? I hear a voice say, "Hoav 
about the ingratitute you get?" Very true, 
and get it often, and never will our education 
reach that point that this can be consoled. — ■ 
This would mean human reformation. 

I have in mind a nurse who has almost 
sealed this height — I refer to Miss Lillian Wald, 
of the Henry Street Settlement, New York, 
Avho we point out with pride. 

Did not (our own) Florence Nightingale. 
whose cap you wear, minister to the wants of 
men in war? There were no organizations 
then. St. Thomas', London, which she estab- 
lished, was not in existence until 1860, and from 
that time, we have a constant demand for 
longer study and more efficient women in our 
ranks, until we find ourselves facing examining 
boards, the same as the medical profession, and 
the 'aspiration steadily growing — to become an 
R. N. 

All things are judged by comparison, and 
when I compare the advantages of the private 
irarses (even in my time) by way of shorter 
hours — safe guards thrown around them by 
Alumnae Associations — ^vigilant women (watch- 

ing the laws of the state) which guard your 
rights and encourage higher and better stand- 
ards even trying now to add to this (political 
freedom) I cannot help but feel their lot is 
getting better all the time. 

Why, it was no uncommon thing to be on 
duty 21 houi's out of 24. When isolated, away 
off from surgeon, doctor and all necessary ap- 
pliances, when the private nurse verily became 
a small hospital (on two feet only) and it is 
on this point I want to dwell a moment. On 
the esiDccial value of association with our 
school and alumnae after we leave it. We well 
know that all things have their pros and cons 
and ifs and buts — Training Schools — Alum- 
nae (much as we love you) we cannot claim 
for you exemption. What is an Alumnae for, 
if not a common ground to further our indi- 
vidual interests, collectively? What happens 
when we leave the boundaries of Maryland? 
The first question asked is, "Of what Alumnae 
are you a member?" When positions come 
from the Army, Navy or Red Cross, the appeal 
comes to your Alumnae for as man.y R. N.'s 
as can or will heed the call, and just a word 
in passing for the Red Cross. We have, in 
our numbers, those who have seen service in 
this Society and of whom Ave should feel justly 
proud. There is no monument so high, no 
granite so enduring, as this tribute to brave, 
loving, loyal Avomanhood — The Red Cross 

This is Woman's Age, and the private nurse 
jjlays no mean part in its progress, if she be 
aAvake and grasp her opportunities as they 
come to her. May I suggest, as a help, an 
acquaintance with all civic questions, to further 
this end. We must accept the progressive 
spirit of the age. We cannot stand still. If 
Ave do, we become a reactionary, and the effect 
is upon Avhom? Ourselves and our Alma Ma- 
ter. It ill behooves any of us to turn onv 
backs on the school that gave us birth. 

It was, Avith a feeling of pride that I heard 
in the Senate Chamber at Annapolis last Aveek, 
in the course of a discussion, "I'm a graduate 
of the University of Maryland, that grand old 
school and there is none better." 

Each one of us has a personal share in this 
public recommendation, as many of you know 
that the Training School of the University of 
Maryland has the same seal as the other De- 
partments of the University. This is not so. 


generally speaking, of training schools. We 
mnst have had men in the past who thought 
well enough of us to give us this honor. 

Believe in yourselves — You have a noble 
heritage, believe it, cherish it, further its in- 
terests for your own best interests. 

Before leaving this subject, another thought 
comes to me — The Re-creation of the Private 
nurse. It may come to us in many forms. To 
take interest in the public aii'airs of today is 
not only a help, but is almost a necessity. In 
this, too, I may say we have among our num- 
bers those versed in the stock markets. A most 
valuable asset when associated with business 

I could go on indefinitely pointing out ways 
and means. The lecture courses of Miss Janet 
Richards are a store house of information — in- 
valuable, because they give up-to-date informa- 
tion in a nut shell, so to speak, and so the worn 
out phrase (no time) must retire. What would 
take months to get by reading, we get in a few 

All change is rest. Get as many view-points 
as you can and so rest that over worked spot 
in your grey matter, private nursing. 

There are several veiled suggestions in this 
talk, so T trust to hear from a great many pro 
and con. I cannot yield the floor, however, 
until I go back and hang up a conclusion on 
that peg T left hanging out in my preamble. 
It is this — We have gotten much froui our 
superintendents and teachers by way of a 
foundation, but, is it asking too much to give 
a little time in the curriculum of our training, 
to prepare us for the necessary duties of the 
AHimnae? I offer this- suggestion or appeal 
in all seriousness. There are so few who are 
not embarrassed when called on to serve. Well 
do I remember when T had the honor to serve 
as President for four years, how I closeted 
myself and tried to see how talking out loud 
sounded, and to swallow four authorities on 
Parliamentary Law. until I had intellectual 
indigestion, night after night, and the worst 
of it is, I still have it. 

With the greatest sympathy for our superin- 
tendents, may we not have the A-B-0 of the 
how, when and where of public speaking for 
our mutual advancement?

Mary's lamb was full of fleas, 

Which fact made Mary blue; 
But now it's clean, she washed his hide 

With HgCP. 

The Iamb got constipated, then 

Was ordered Calomel, 
Took ten grains HgCl- 

For plain HgCl. 

Poor lamb has gone to (the Hospital). 

Mary has such lovely hair, 

The prettiest golden hue, 
Which ne'er can fade, for Mary has 

On hand H^O::. 

Once Mary would a shopping go 
(She went without her popper), 

She wanted many things, but then 
She'd left without a Cu. 

Mary had an awful thirst 

One day, not long ago; 
She strolled into a beer saloon 

And ordered H2O. 

Our Mary then was handed 

A yellow-looking mess, 
Which looked some like an egg-nogg 

And smelled like H^S. 

Mary's thirst is quenched at last, 
She fixed it in an ice-cream den ; 

She asked for a plain soda, 
But was given HCN.

The Professor Emeritus of the University of 
Michigan is quoted as having made the state- 
ment that love-making is an art and should be 
learned as a part of a college curriculum 
(voicing the sentiments of D. F. McMullen, 
Kanode and Zimmerman). He makes an ap- 
peal that the men should not wait until they 
are thirty-five before looking at the fair sex. 

Professor McKeever, of Kansas University, 
declares that any suppression of "puppy love" 
is a great mistake. 

This is one course that the students will not 
petition the faculty to take off the schedule, as 
they have in the case of Medical Jurisprudence 
at this school. 

If the faculty should see fit to make love- 
making a regular course, it would be a case of 
"Kiss me. kid, I need the credit." 

I should manifest concern!

Herewith we present Doctor John J3eale Da- 
vidge, for whom Davidge Hall was named. Tt 
was he who first entertained the idea of found- 
ing tlie present University of Maryland and 
was only deterred from starting the same earlier 
than 1807 by the unwillingness of his colleagues 
to associate themselves with him in such a 
problematical undertaking. He was born at 
Annapolis in 1768, and in due time entered St. 
John's College, obtaining therefrom in 1789 
the degree of M. A. He is thus doubly asso- 
ciated with our institution, for this ancient and

honorable institution is now the academic de- 
partment of our University. He began the 
slud.y of medicine under the tutelage of the 
Doctor Hurrays of Annapolis, later entered the 
University of lOdiuburgh, but finally changed to 
the Univer-sity of GlasgOAV, graduating there- 
from with the degree of M. D., in 1793. After 
practicing a short time in Birmingham, Eng- 
land, he returned to his native state, locating in 
Baltimore in 1796. In 1801 he began to ad- 
vertise private courses of lectures to medical 
students, Avhich were continued annually until 
merged in 1807 into the College of Medicine of 
Maryland, the pereursor of the University of 
Maryland. From 1807 to 1812 he lectured upon 
surgery, obstetrics and institutes, and from 1812 
to his death he held the chairs of surgery or 
anatomy, one or both. Doctor Davidge Avas 
twice married, his first wife being Miss Wil- 
helmina Stuart, of the Firth of Solway : his 
second. Mrs. Rebecca Troup Polk, a widow, of 
Harfoi'd County. Md. He left a son by his firsl 
marriage, and three daughters by his second. 
He died in 1829. He Imd great influence

throughout the State, was much beloved by his 
acquaintances and revered by his students who 
spoke of him as the father of the University 
of Maryland. He was a man of iipright charac- 
ter and unswerving integrity, of strong moral 
and physical courage, a good citizen, faithful 
and affectionate in his domestic relations and 
enthusiastic student and finished scholar. It is 
befitting that such a man should be honored 
by the attachment of his name to a building of 
the University of which he was the originator. 
It would, however, have been more appropriate 
to have named the main University building 
Davidge Hall. We hope in the not distant future 
to see the building which he did so much to 
make possible, christened for the father of the 
University and the present Davidge Hall 
changed to Potter Hall, after another prominent 
figure in the early days of the University's 


In order to assure a prompt delivery of 
"Old Maryland" to the students of the Uni- 
versity during the summer months, while away

pect to leave town, will kindly send change of

Nothing Is Ever Accomplished If One Waits 
Till All Opposition Is Overcome. 

Messrs. Members of the Board of Regents 
;ind Provost Fell, how about a combined gradu- 
ation banquet? Heretofore each department 
has been accustomed to hold its own affair. If 
the University of Maryland wishes to impress 
the public with its magnitude, now is the time, 
and such an occasion as the above would go a 
long way towards accomplishing the object, as 
well as advertising the University. Those who 
attended the Centennial Banquet will recollect 
the impressiveness of the occasion, as well as 
the enthusiasm displayed by those in attend- 
auee. All too long have we been acciistomed to 
holding separate puny affairs. Let's change 
our way and get together. President Fell, get 
busy. We want a combined banquet badly. In 
brief, we need all the strength we can muster. 
Last session the University made radical addi- 
tions to the school by merging the medical, den- 
tal and law departments of the Baltimore Med- 
ical College with those of the University. The 
graduates of the Baltimore Medical College, we 
are pleased to announce, have accepted the 
merger very graciously. In every way possible 
they have made themselves as one of us and 
have given their adopted mother a most loyal 
sui^port. A combined banquet to which the 
graduates of the Baltimore Medical College 
would also be eligible should prove an impor- 
tant factor in welding the forces of the Univer- 
sity into one harmonious mass. Doubtless there 
will be. some opposition to a banquet such as 
proposed, but one must remember that nothing 
is ever accomplished if one waits till all opposi- 
tion is overcome.

There must be a reason 




The closing j'ear at the University of Mary- ' 
land is one that should long be remembered. 
The past year has been epochal ; it has seen the 
merging of two of the South 's largest schools 
and the transfusing into each a different and 
beneficial spirit. It has seen a spirit of closer 
unity manifested between the diiferent depart- 
ments, a greater university fellowship dis- 
played, and this largelj^ attributable to the 
Baseball League and the Glee and Instrumen- 
tal Clubs. 

A factor in this spirit and the diffusion of it 
has been "Old Maryland." The policy and ob- 
ject of "Old Maryland" is to voice the views 
and opinions of the undergraduate feody, to lay 
their views before the eyes of the masters of the 
institution and to make them see as the student 
sees the excellence and the shortcomings of 
their school. The mission of "Old Maryland" 
is to carry to the eyes of those most of all the 
world interested in the student — ^his father, 
mother, sisters and brothers, sweetheart dnd 
friends — the activities of the student, his fel- 
low-students, and his school. 

The editors of ' ' Old Maryland ' ' are alert and 
gather throughout the school news that is of 
interest to every one. An equal distribution of 
space to each department is always attempted 
and does not vary to any appreciable extent in 
any issue. 


The Latin-American Club of the University 
of Maryland held its annual banquet at the 
Ilennert Hotel, Wednesday, April 15th. 

The progress that the Latin countries have 
made from a medical standpoint was outlined 
in an address by Dr. Randolph Winslow, dean 
of the University of Maryland. 

Cuban Consul Cesar Barranco spoke on the 
progress that the Latin countries have made 
by watching America. Other addresses Avere 
made by A. Balert, president of the elub, a.nd 
Eehe Varria, its secretary. 


Although the Cordell Memorial Fund has not 
advanced at the rate we had expected, still 
those interested are not discouraged. Your 
committee had hoped by this time to have had 
the Fund completed. A tablet of sufficient 
merit will cost at least $200.00. Therefore, 
your committee urgently requests those con- 
templating a contribution to do so at their 
earliest convenience.

On Januar.y 25, 1914, the students' Bible class 
of the University of Maryland, under the lead- 
ershiji and guidance of Rev. Kenneth G. Mur- 
ray, organized a literaiy society in connection 
with the Bible class. The object of this society

next regular meeting, which was held on Fri- 
day, February 6, at 7 P. M. in the parlors of 
Fayette Street Methodist Church, it having 
been agreed iipon to hold a regular meeting on 
Friday night of each week until the first Fri-
